  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

In spite of many case reports of fat embolism syndrome (FES) in Europe and in the USA, only 50 cases were reported in Japan. Most of the reports were made by orthopedists or by general surgeons. Considering the scarce description on FES by neurologist or neurosurgeon in Japan and also in other countries, the authors report three cases of FES and analyze neurological signs and symptoms in these cases.

Case 1: 17 years old man was crushed in his both legs by motor cycle accident. He lost his consciousness right after the accident and he was transferred to the Kitasato University Hospital.
