Abstract

Chronic pulmonary venous hypertension causes dilatation and engorgement of bronchial veins because of a close communication between bronchial and pulmonary veins. We report a case of severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction with chronically elevated pulmonary venous pressure leading to characteristic bronchoscopic findings of engorgement of bronchial veins.
