PMID:  1532897     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two patients with Down syndrome, intracardiac communications and elevated pulmonary arteriolar resistance presented early in life. Both patients had significant stenosis of pulmonary veins. The progressive nature of the stenosis is illustrated in one patient. Pulmonary venous stenosis in Down syndrome has been recorded only twice before in the literature, and may play a part in the early onset of pulmonary vascular occlusive disease in some patients.
