Abstract

Cerebral tissue pulmonary embolus (CTPE) is a rare event following severe blunt or penetrating head trauma and is often complicated by coagulation disturbances and hemorrhage. Donor cerebral tissue pulmonary embolism has been reported to cause lethal, early graft dysfunction in lung transplant recipients. We report a case of donor cerebral tissue pulmonary embolism in a 41-year-old female single lung transplant recipient with excellent post-operative graft function.
