Pulmonary hypertension in chronic kidney disease is included in the group 5 of the pulmonary hypertension classification of the World Health Organization. Its mechanism is multifactorial and little known. Its importance has increased due to its impact on survival according to whether they received a kidney transplant, the greater risk of early renal graft loss and major hospital stays. In this review, we analyze the panorama of chronic renal disease in Mexico and Latin America, the epidemiology, pathophysiological mechanisms, the diagnostic process and the treatment of pulmonary hypertension in chronic kidney disease.
