Abstract

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5915/16-1-12440

Many cardiopulmonary abnormalities have been described in patients with sleep apnea syndrome. We are reporting a patient with severe obstructive sleep apnea who had severe episodic pulmonary hypertension, hypoxemia, and nephrotic syndrome. We are postulating that nephrotic syndrome was causally related to sleep apneas.
