Abstract

Arterial and venous thrombi can coexist without preexisting conditions, such as malignant disease, thrombotic predisposition, or arteriovenous shunt. We herein report a case of acute cerebral infarction and pulmonary thromboembolism in the absence of underlying disease. A 71-year-old woman presented with left hemiplegia. On an examination, her oxygen saturation was 91% on ambient air despite the absence of chest symptoms and clear lung fields on a chest radiograph. The patient was finally diagnosed with acute cerebral infarction caused by large artery atherosclerosis and acute pulmonary thromboembolism due to deep vein thrombosis, consequent to immobilization for three days after the onset of cerebral infarction.
