abstract

  • We report a case of pulmonary capillary hemangiomatosis affecting a 35-yr-old Caucasian woman. Progressive pulmonary hypertension was documented by serial cardiac catheterizations, and pulmonary function studies showed changes suggestive of chronic pulmonary congestion. Although a difficult condition to diagnose during life as it may mimic veno-occlusive disease, capillary hemangiomatosis has a distinct histopathologic picture.
