Abstract

Pulmonary embolism (PE) usually has multiple presentations. Arrhythmias as sole manifestation of PE is usually rare. In elderly population arrhythmias with PE are usually blamed on concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD). We present a case of a 75 year old lady who presented with recurrent PSVT and was subsequently diagnosed as PE.

Keywords: PE, CAD, PSVT
