Abstract

We report on an African-American male with Cantu syndrome who required a pericardial window for a significant pericardial effusion in infancy and was subsequently found to have partial pulmonary venous obstruction (PVO) leading to pulmonary hypertension. Measurement of bilateral pulmonary capillary wedge pressures is important to uncover partial PVO.
