FULL TEXT  


A case of gas embolism during hysteroscopy in a young woman suffering from sterility is reported. Although this surgical procedure is considered safe, however, when complications do occur, they can be severe and rapidly fatal. The importance of an accurate intraoperative monitoring for a rapid diagnosis and treatment remarkably improve the clinical picture of the patient.
