ABSTRACT
Bilateral extensive pulmonary TB is a significant health problem; when it is recurrent, the problem is more significant. Atrial septal defect (ASD) with Eisenmenger syndrome is a severe health problem; when secondary pulmonary hypertension reach extremely values (160 mmHg), the problem become more complex. When recurrent extensive bilateral TB associate with extremely elevated pulmonary hypertension due to ASD seems to be an… exercise of impossible in medicine, but it happened in reality. So, we have to treat such a patient, 34 years older; more, he is smoker and with chronic alcohol intake, denutrition, secondary severe hypoxemia and poliglobulia. Despite all these unfavorable premises, dual treatment: tuberculostatic treatment II OMS category and specific PHT treatment with sildenafil and bosentan, result in significant improve in patient clinical status together with bilateral recurrent extensive TB cure and constant evolution of PHT values. So, it can be speculate that association between TB treatment and PHT specific treatment had a benefic influence concerning to TB evolution in our patient.
