PLATA, María Camila; REY, Diana Lucía; VILLAQUIRAN, Claudio  and  ROSSELLI, Diego. Intimal sarcoma of the pulmonary artery presenting as pulmonary embolism. Iatreia [online]. 2017, vol.30, n.3, pp.340-343. ISSN 0121-0793.

Pulmonary artery sarcomas are extremely rare; due to their insidious growth, diagnosis occurs late and prognosis is poor. We present the case of a 33-year-old woman with a history of dyspnea, chest pain and syncope. An obstructing mass on the right ventricle, main pulmonary artery and right branch were interpreted as a possible pulmonary embolism.
