Pulmonary hypertension is associated with a number of conditions. In patients who have extensive scarring of the lungs (fibrosis as seen in scleroderma and sometimes rheumatoid arthritis) there is diminished lung capacity so the heart has to increase the pressure necessary to push the blood through the pulmonary artery to the lungs. Other patients develop increased pulmonary artery pressures due to narrowing of the artery. This can be seen in conditions such as scleroderma (often in the limited form called CREST) or less commonly lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus). Recently this type of pulmonary hypertension was found to be associated with diet drugs that are no longer on the market.
