There are various echocardiographic parameters for diagnosis of pulmonary embolism. Among these paramaters, “McConnell sign” is defined as right ventricular free wall hypokinesis in the presence of normal right ventricular apical contractility. We presented a patient with acute pulmonary embolism which caused reversible akinesia of the apex and right ventricular midfree wall, a finding we would like to term “reverse McConnell sign.”
