    Abstract:

    The diagnostic evaluation of a pediatric patient with suspected pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is extensive but essential, given the rapid progression of the disease if left undiagnosed and untreated. The major goals of performing a complete diagnostic work-up are to confirm the diagnosis of PAH, assess disease severity, rule out associated diseases, and begin to formulate an individualized treatment plan for the pediatric patient with pulmonary hypertension. This article will provide a comprehensive review of the diagnostic work-up of the child with suspected PAH as well as a review of some of the challenges faced when assessing a child for PAH.
