Abstract

[ill] Chest wall tenderness is commonly indicative of chest [ill]l disease. Two patients with angiographically proved pul[ill]nary emboli had clinical presentations dominated by chest [ill]ll tenderness. Clinicians should be alert to this mode of [ill]sentation and not exclude pulmonary embolism on the [ill]sis of such findings.
