Abstract

We describe the case of an 83-year-old man with a family history of pulmonary hypertension (PH) who presented with severe pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and later tested positive for a novel bone morphogenetic protein receptor 2 (BMPR2) gene mutation. To our knowledge, this may be the oldest reported patient with PAH in whom a BMPR2 mutation was initially identified.
