Fat embolism syndrome is a rare clinical condition associated with trauma, particularly of long bones. FES after fracture of neck of femur or head of humerus is uncommon. We report a case of FES following fracture in neck of femur and head of humerus in a man with history of mitral valve replacement, on long-term oral anticoagulant therapy, with an alleged history of convulsions. Our dilemma in clinical diagnosis is discussed.
