    Pulmonary embolism is rare in children aged less than 15 years in whom its estimated annual incidence is 0.2 cases per 100,000, against the approximately 700 cases per 100,000 in patients aged more than 85 years. We describe the case of a 15-year-old girl who had a history of thrombocytopenia...
