Pulmonary embolism: When doctors say blood clots in the lungs, they are usually talking about pulmonary embolism, which is blockages in one or more arteries in the lungs, caused by blood clots from another part of your body, most commonly, your legs. Pulmonary embolism is a potentially life-threatening complication of DVT (deep vein thrombosis), which is clotting in the deep veins.
