Pulmonary embolism is a rare clinical onset of chronic myeloproliferative diseases. Early diagnosis is very important because medical therapy reduces both mortality and morbility. We describe a case of pulmonary embolism as clinical onset of an unknown myeloproliferative disorder. On the basis of our experience is very important early diagnosis and therapy to reduce incidence of later major thrombotic complications.
