Abstract

Portopulmonary hypertension syndrome (PPHS) is a complication of portal hypertension where the substrate is micro-vessel lesions which are indicative of plexogenic arteriopathy. PPHS has not been linked to pulmonary schistosomiasis. We report, to the best of our knowledge for the first time, a case of PPHS associated with schistosomiasis mansoni.
