Abstract
The case of a patient with severe pulmonary hypertension whose etiology has remained unknown until an autopsy was performed is discussed in a symposium of pathological anatomy. This case helped to address the diagnostic and therapeutic management of pulmonary hypertension. The broad differential diagnosis of this disease requires a diagnostic strategy to be developped. Clinical reasoning leading to a probable diagnosis based on clinical biological and radiological information is not only a difficult task for the speaker but also a rich source of learning opportunities for our medical community.
