Treatment of pulmonary hypertension with sildenafil in a neonate with Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasea Congenita

Kecskes, Zsuzsoka; Kent, Alison; Reynolds, Graham

Description

Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) remains an important cause of mortality and morbidity in the term neonate. Preliminary but limited data suggest that there may be a role for sildenafil in the treatment of PPHN. We report the successful treatment of PPHN caused by pulmonary hypoplasia in a patient with spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita.
