Thanks,Dr.Dinesh Gupta.

46yrs old patient is known case of branchial asthma presenting with features of CHF ,there is no prominence of pulmonary conus in her x-ray chest PA view and no features of RVH in her ECG .In my view it is case of branchial ashtha with hypothyroidism with ischaemic cardiomyopathy with multiple VPCs with CHF .VPCs are precipitating factor for CHF and should be treated accordingly. Although primary PAH is common in female in which lung fields are olegaemic.
