Septic pulmonary embolism is an uncommon disorder that is most often seen in patients with predisposing situations (intravenous drug use, endocarditis, septic thrombophlebitis, central venous catheter infections…). The clinical signs are non-specific. CT scan is useful for diagnosis showing bilateral pulmonary nodules with some orienting signs. We report a case of a 43-year-old woman, with a history of hemodialysis via a tunneled jugular catheter, who presented with acute respiratory distress and fever, chest CT showed multiple bilateral nodules, some of which are excavated. Blood cultures showed a staphylococcus aureusbacteremia. The diagnosis of septic emboli was made in view of all the clinical, biological, and radiological elements.
