Pulmonary Vascular Disease

by Jeremy Brown, PhD

The vasculature of the lungs (arteries and veins) is also susceptible to various pathologies. Pulmonary embolisms, in particular, should be recognized, classified, and treated promptly to prevent serious sequelae, including death. Pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary vasculitis may follow a more indolent course but can, nonetheless, also lead to serious long-term complications. These disorders are important to keep on a differential diagnosis, as they often go undiagnosed in favor of more common pathologies that cause similar symptomatology, like shortness of breath or chest pain.
