PMID:  7352785     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A combination of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and fatal pulmonary hypertension occurred in a patient who, to our knowledge, had the highest pulmonary artery pressure (120/65 mm Hg) reported without any clinical or autopsy findings of pulmonary interstitial disease or vasculitis. The gradual development of pulmonary hypertension over years is a rare complication in patients with SLE.
