Introduction: Pulmonary embolism, occurring as a result of acute obstruction of the pulmonary artery system, may vary from the frequently observed asymptomatic clinical state to sudden death and is a disease with high morbidity and mortality rates. Pulmonary embolism is most commonly observed within 5-7 days of trauma and has been occasionally reported before 4 days.
