Sažetak

Numerous disorders of coagulation and fibrinolysis have been reported in patients
with thyroid diseases, especially with hyperthyroidism. Most articles are focused on deep vein thrombosis
risk, however, few of them describe association between hyperthyroidism and pulmonary embolism.
We report a case of a 43-year-old woman with long-term uncontrolled hyperthyroidism complicated
by venous thromboembolism. The potential mechanisms could be endothelial dysfunction, decreased
fibrinolytic activity, and increased levels of coagulation factors. Thyroid evaluation should be
recommended in patients with unprovoked venous thromboembolic events.
