Pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure in patients with beta-thalassemia intermedia

, : Pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure in patients with beta-thalassemia intermedia. Chest 107(1): 50-53

We analyzed seven patients with beta-thalassemia intermedia presenting with congestive heart failure secondary to pulmonary hypertension. This condition has been recognized only recently as part of the clinical spectrum of beta-thalassemia. Our group of patients included two men and five women with the clinical picture and laboratory data typical of beta-thalassemia intermedia.
