PURPOSE: Pulmonary sarcoidosis is often complicated with pulmonary hypertension (PH), which is associated with increased disability and mortality. However, little is known about the mechanism of sarcoidosis-associated PH (SAPH), and not much progress has been made in the treatment of SAPH. In this paper, a prospective observational study was performed on 72 consecutive Chinese sarcoidosis patients to study the mechanism of SAPH, the response to corticosteroids, and the efficacy of interventional therapy.
