However, from the pathology standpoint, 3 distinct pathologic patterns might be found in those patients: plexogenic
pulmonary arteriopathy, recurrent pulmonary thromboembolic disease, and pulmonary veno-occlusive disease (PVOD).
Additional findings at autopsy included cardiomegaly at 720 gm (234-390 gm), bilateral pulmonary edema containing hemosiderin laden macrophages, congestive hepatosplenomegaly and plexogenic
arteriopathy on pulmonary microscopic examination.
angiopathy in pulmonary intralobar sequestrations pathogenetic mechanisms.
Thrombotic lesions in primary plexogenic
56) The hallmark histopathologic lesion is plexogenic
7cm) and microscopic plexogenic
arteriopathy, low grade, consistent with pulmonary hypertension within the intrapulmonary vasculature.
arteriopathy associated with pulmonary vasculitis in systemic lupus erythematosus.
The microscopic features ascribed to PH can broadly be called plexogenic
3] Histopathologic examination of 36 patients undergoing heart-lung transplantation with plexogenic
pulmonary arteriopathy revealed cholesterol granulomas in 9 cases.
