  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A thirty-year-old woman had complaints of general fatigue and gain in body weight, which had developed since the third trimester of pregnancy. On admission,she had lip cyanosis, general edema, and tachycardia. A chest rentogenogram showed caraiomegaly and dilata-tion of the pulmonary arteries. On cardiac catheteriza-tion, pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary vascu-lar resistance were elevated moderately. A pulmonary perfusion scintigram revealed a defect in the left lower lung field with no evidence of thrombus in a pulmonary artery angiogram.
