A 82 years old female underwent elective operation for left femur neck fracture under general anesthesia. At the twenty-two postoperative days, she suddenly developed cyanosis with hypotension. She was transferred to intensive care unit and pulmonary embolism was diagnosed by pulmonary perfusion scan and echocardiography. Despite of diagnosis and treatment of pulmonaly embolism, she expired 29 hours after onset of symptom.
