Pulmonary embolism presenting as seizures

Abstract

Two patients with massive pulmonary embolism (PE) presented with generalized seizures. Pathophysiologic abnormalities that explain this clinical syndrome include respiratory acidosis, hypoxemia, and cerebral hypoperfusion due to decreased cardiac output. PE should be considered in the differential diagnosis of new-onset and otherwise unexplained seizures.
