Bottom Line: Lung cancer is known as a risk factor of pulmonary embolism.We experienced a case of pulmonary embolism combined with pleural effusion and pleuritic chest pain as the initial manifestation of large cell lung cancer, which is a relatively rare cell type of lung cancer in Korea.We report it with a review of the literature.

f7-kjim-7-2-143-11: Echocardiogram shows severe pericardial effusion.

Mentions: He was readmitted because of epigastric discomfort and dyspnea after 2 weeks. The chest P-A showed blunting of both costophrenic angles, suggestive of bilateral pleural effusion. Ultrasonogram also showed bilateral pleural effusion and ascites. In spite of thoracentesis, dyspnea was not improved. EKG showed low voltage and electrical alterance on all leads and echocardiogram revealed severe pericardial effusion (Fig. 7). The patient died on the 4th day after admission due to cardiac tamponade in spite of pericardiocentesis.
