      Pulmonary occlusive venopathy and PM are rather uncommon (fewer than 200 cases have been reported in the published data) but increasingly recognized causes of pulmonary hypertension. They could represent part of the spectrum of vasculopathies of PPH, but they are distinct from the precapillary causes of PAH.
