  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We report a case of cerebral air embolism that occur-red after chest trauma. The diagnosis was confirmed by CT and skull roentgenogram which demonstrated air bubbles in intracranial arteries. It is well recognized that cerebral air embolism is caused by various di-agnostic and therapeutic procedures, and trauma. But it may often be overlooked because it is diagnosed clini-cally and there are no characteristic symptoms nor signs. Although various ways of treatment have been reported, prevention and early diagnosis are the most important.
