Abstract: Severe pulmonary Arterial Hypertension with Pulmonary Edema with Sepsis in a postnatal mother with Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) followed by LSCS is uncommon. Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) is the commonest adult congenital heart defect (CHD). 15 % of these patients will eventually develop pulmonary hypertension if left untreated. ASD closure is not recommended when pulmonary hypertension is irreversible. Congenital heart disease should be considered in the evaluation of dyspnoea in a young adult. The management of ASD with associated pulmonary hypertension is difficult. It is pertinent that a detailed hemodynamic assessment be undertaken. The present case report focusses on a patient with severe ASD with pulmonary hypertension with pulmonary edema and sepsis who was with 35 weeks of gestation and the control of symptoms during Caesarean section.
