We report an unusual case of a 31-year-old woman who presented to the emergency room with acute chest pain. Computed tomography angiography revealed a lingular pulmonary infarction. Pulmonary embolism was due to a non-cruoric subsegmental pulmonary artery emboli. It corresponded to the distal migration of a contraceptive implant inserted subdermally in the left arm a few months ago (Nexplanon®). Endovascular retrieval was performed successfully with no complications.
