      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. Patients present with subtle progressive findings.

      2. Cardiac Echo = excellent screening tool, but does not make a diagnosis.

      3. RHC is essential for diagnosis.

      4. Treatment must be individualized to not only severity but to patient preference and lifestyle.

      5. Current treatments are limited and demanding.
