Abstract

We report a case of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) following short term exposure to smoke in an enclosed area. The patient was obese and had type 2 diabetes mellitus. He developed PE as a consequence of acute systemic inflammatory response to short term exposure to smoke and an underlying chronic inflammatory milieu.
