ABSTRACT
The article presents a case of pulmonary veno-occlusive disease with clinical manifestations of paroxysmal attacks of pulmonary edema and signs of pulmonary hypertension. History of addiction to powdered cleanser preceded the onset of symptoms and suggested a possible pathogenic relationship. Anticoagulant therapy resulted in increased exercise tolerance, reduced attacks of pulmonary edema and improved pulmonary function.
