Pregnancy is associated with major physiologic changes in various organ systems of the body, especially the cardiovascular system. This is especially dangerous in the presence of pre-existing Pulmonary Artery Hypertension (PAH) and maternal mortality is unacceptably high (30-50%) in such patients. We report the successful perioperative management of a parturient with severe PAH due to an undiagnosed Eisenmenger’s syndrome, posted for emergency caesarean section.
