We report on a patient with pulmonary thromboembolism, primarily diagnosed by urgent TEE. The thrombus was localized in the distal portion of the right pulmonary artery and was easily recognized by transversal plane TEE inspection. Pulmonary scintigraphy was subsequently performed and confirmed TEE findings.
