Abstract

Most pulmonary tumor emboli are microscopic and occlude small arteries and arterioles with subsequent insidious clinical presentation. These emboli usually need conservative treatment. Emboli that spread to large proximal pulmonary arteries, although rare, can be life-threatening. This article focuses on the importance of prompt recognition, diagnosis, and appropriate management of pulmonary tumor emboli.
