We encountered a case of severe pulmonary hypertension (PH) with chronic IP. The patient initially presented with shortness of breath and often lost consciousness due to PH, and seven years after his first visit, he ultimately died. An autopsy revealed ACIF and usual IP. In particular, the ACIF compri...
