Abstract

A young woman was admitted to this hospital because of dyspnea, easy fatigability, hemoptysis, orthopnea and paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea. Cardiac catheterization revealed an elevated pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and a normal left atrial pressure, suggesting an obstruction to blood flow at the level of the pulmonary veins. Postmortem examination confirmed this diagnosis. The clinical differentiation of pulmonary hypertension due to pulmonary venoocclusive disease from pulmonary hypertension due to structural changes in the pulmonary vasculature or mitral valve disease is attempted.
