CKM Tam, KS Lun, EMC Chau, AKT Chau


Prognosis is poor in children with severe idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension who present with progressive downhill course. We report the use of oral sildenafil in a 13-year-old girl with suprasystemic idiopathic pulmonary arterial pulmonary hypertension. This therapy improves her quality of life and optimizes the chance of successful lung transplantation.
