Abstract

Chronic lung tissue disease leads to secondary pulmonary hypertension (PH). The conservative treatment has limited
possibilities and lung transplantation (LuTx) remains the final treatment solution. This case report presents the
natural course of diagnostics and treatment of the patient with idiopatic pulmonary fibrosis and secondary PH, who
underwent LuTx.
