Abstract

A patient had both the clinical presentations and the ventilation- perfusion scan that simulated pulmonary embolism so closely that anticoagulant therapy was administered. Computed tomography of the chest and Ga-67 citrate scintigraphy identified hilar adenopathy due to sarcoidosis as the cause of a ventilation-perfusion mismatch.
