We report the case of a 51-year-old Caucasian woman who developed a pulmonary embolism in the absence of any pre-existing risk factors for VTE, three weeks following clozapine initiation for treatment resistant paranoid schizophrenia. She was initially misdiagnosed and treated for suspected COVID-19 infection.
