Abstract               Pulmonary embolism is a potentially fatal disorder. Data regarding the outcome of clinically recognised cases of pulmonary embolism is sparse. Due to the increasing incidence of detection of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) along with better antiretroviral therapy, the life expectancy of these patients is increased with early diagnosis and treatment. Literature supports the increased incidence of thrombosis with embolic episodes in immunocompromised cases. We report a 43 year oldimmunocompromised male suffering from pulmonary thromboembolism due to chronic venous insufficiency on antiretroviral therapy.

Keywords: Venous Insufficiency, Pulmonary Thromboembolism, HIV Infection and AIDS.
