Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This is a report of fatality immediately after administration of epoprostenol. The patient was previously diagnosed with CREST syndrome and associated interstitial lung disease. She developed worsening pulmonary hypertension and was clinically diagnosed with pulmonary veno-occlusive disease. The patient developed flash pulmonary edema and arrested after administration of low-dose epoprostenol in the intensive care unit. An autopsy revealed the patient suffered from pulmonary capillary hemangiomatosis. We review our case and what is known about this rare disease.
