Pulmonary carcinomatous arteriopathy was seen at autopsy in three patients who presented with sub-acute cor pulmonale. All had adenocarcinomas of unknown origin. The arteries and arterioles showed fresh and organizing thrombi with narrowing or occlusion. Large muscular arteries also showed tumour cells within the thrombi. Lymphangitis carcinomatosis was also present to a variable extent.
