Pulmonary Hypertension A rare but important cause of dyspnoea

Pulmonary hypertension can be a devastating disease that is easily missed in the early stages because of its typically nonspecific presentation with gradually increasing dyspnoea, and may coexist with other sources of dyspnoea. With advances in management, most forms of pulmonary hypertension are treatable with medication. Early diagnosis and treatment are key to improving functional and haemodynamic outcomes and survival.
