Pulmonary veno-occlusive disease in myeloproliferative disorder.
European Respiratory Journal
The present study reports a case of biopsy-proven pulmonary veno-occlusive disease as a cause of severe pulmonary hypertension in a patient suffering from a chronic myeloproliferative disorder. The pulmonary disease evolved favourably under treatment with defibrotide, a pro-fibrinolytic medication used in hepatic veno-occlusive disease.
