SARS COV 2 ASSOCIATED ACUTE PULMONARY EMBOLISM IMAGISTIC FINDINGS (Abstract): SARS CoV 2 pandemic started in December 2019 in China and has since raised major global concerns because of its multiple systemic complications seen especially in critically ill patients. One of the complications observed is systemic thromboembolic disease, including acute pulmonary embolism, presumably due to the severe inflammatory profile of the patients and due to endothelial disfunction. We present two cases that show through computed tomography pulmonary angiography the imagistic findings in SARS CoV 2 related acute pulmonary embolism in patients that have been initially hospitalised only with symptoms related to SARS CoV 2 pneumonia.
