Though nephrotic syndrome is associated with various thromboembolic phenomena, acute pulmonary thromboembolism is a rare complication. We experienced a case with acute pulmonary thromboembolism in a patient with generalized edema and profound proteinuria. Subsequent investigation revealed that the pulmonary thromboembolism was secondary to nephrotic syndrome due to membranous glomerulonephritis. This thromboembolic complication was successfully treated with thrombolysis and anticoagulation.
