INTRODUCTION: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a debilitating disease, which can result in right ventricular failure. It is the result of chronic obstruction of the pulmonary vasculature following episodes of pulmonary embolism (PE) and incomplete resolution. Patients with chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPDs) are at risk of developing pulmonary hypertension (PH). Currently, there is scarce data on CTEPH in the setting of CMPD. We describe a patient with progressive dyspnea, found to have CTEPH in the setting of essential thrombocytosis.
