Abstract

Missile embolization to the pulmonary artery is rare. The diagnosis is suspected if a missile is seen on radiograph in a lung field without hemopneumothorax or pulmonary contusion. Treatment of the injury and embolic sites is indicated. We report a case of missile embolization to the lung associated with a carotid-jugular arteriovenous fistula.
