Abstract

 

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a severe medical condition that requires a high degree of clinical suspicion to prevent mortality and morbidity. PE can mimic pneumonia due to its clinical and laboratory findings. Here we report of three cases without an identifiable thrombotic source, who first presented with more likely pneumonia and were later diagnosed with and treated for PE.
