Case Report

Massive Pulmonary Embolism in a Chinese Adolescent Boy
男性青少年廣泛肺栓塞病報告一例

PY Loung, NC Fong, KC Tse


Abstract

This is a case report of massive pulmonary embolism, an uncommon condition in the paediatric population, in a boy who presented with acute onset shortness of breath. The use of tissue plasminogen activator, a form of thrombolytic therapy not commonly used in children, reversed the critical condition of our patient who eventually made a good recovery. Literature review of the disease was performed and the epidemiology, clinical features, investigation tools and strategies and management are discussed.

本文報導了一例兒科少見的廣泛性肺栓塞病例。該病例表現為急性呼吸困難,對較少應用於兒科病人的溶栓藥物組織纖溶酶原啟動物有反應,臨床病情得到改善並且最終恢復良好。本文對文獻進行了回顧並對該疾病的流行病學,臨床特點,檢查手段以及治療進行了討論。
