The conditions considered here are those where disease is essentially confined to the pulmonary vascular bed. Many potential causes of pulmonary arterial hypertension have already been covered in chapters 7 to 9. Cardiac diseases are dealt with in the next chapter and systemic disorders in which there may be involvement of small pulmonary vessels are considered later.
