A 17-year-old girl was transferred to this hospital because of chest pain and hemoptysis. A diagnosis of membranous glomerulonephritis with the nephrotic syndrome had been made 3 months earlier. The day before admission, she went to another hospital because of chest pain for 2 weeks, along with hemoptysis, fever, tachycardia, and tachypnea. Computed tomographic angiography showed emboli in both pulmonary arteries, and echocardiography showed acute right heart strain. The patient was transferred to this hospital, and a management decision was made.
