The case of a decompression sickness in woman, diving to 26 meter depth is reported. The patient was helped by instructor's computer (error!) and she presented risk factors for embolic disease (obesity, smoke, estroprogestinic therapy). She presented with many symptoms of decompression sickness during immersion and during re-ascent (headache, vertigoes and paresthesias). She was not treated on the place of incident, but only 36 hours later at our center of hyperbaric medicine. Her Magnetic Resonance imaging showed hyperintensity lesions of white matter.
