Onshore diving operations are often carried out in remote areas with poor or nil medical assistance available at site. Diving crew also tends to be poorly trained and inexperienced. As a result, initially, diving accident cases get treated symptomatically, till proper diagnosis is established and therapeutic recompression carried out after a considerable delay. Pulmonary barotrauma, lung burst, leading to Arterial Gas Embolism ( AGE) and its dreadful effects is a known complication of diving especially amongst novice divers. A case report of embolism in both Anterior Cerebral Artery and Posterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery (ACA and PICA) distribution with successful delayed hyperbaric oxygen treatment ( HBOT)
