PMID:  1678884     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of congenital mitral stenosis with pulmonary hypertension is presented. The severity and rapid development of the pulmonary vascular changes are unusual, especially for a young child. The case underscores the importance of early detection of correctable congenital heart disease and emphasizes the unpredictability of the time course and severity of irreversible pulmonary hypertension.
