Pelvic ring and acetabular fractures are major high-energy trauma injuries and are often associated with other injuries or fractures. In particular, a venous thromboembolism is an important common complication in trauma patients with pelvic or acetabular fractures. We report a case of a fatal pulmonary thromboembolism after a pelvic fracture in a 60-year-old female patient.
