Approach to Pulmonary Venous Hypertension in the Acyanotic Newborn

Michael P. D'Alessandro, M.D.
Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed


DDX:

Approach/Discussion:
Pulmonary venous hypertension in newborn due frequently to congenital cardiovascular lesions that cause obstruction to blood flow distal to pulmonary veins leading to prominent pulmonary vasculature that is hazy due to interstitial pulmonary edema; also see hyperinflated lungs due to peripheral air trapping, hepatomegaly due to congestive heart failure.

Pulmonary venous hypertension in acyanotic newborn infant : suspect TAPVR (obstructed) when you have pulmonary venous hypertension and normal sized heart.
