Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) is a rare condition, seen usually in association with congenital heart disease or secondary to various acquired causes. Isolated PVS, in adults, especially in absence of congenital heart disease is extremely uncommon. We report PVS of left sided pulmonary veins in an 18-year-old male, who had been till then diagnosed as primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). (Echocardiography ****;**:E1-E4).
