Transient Isolated Right Ventricular Hypertrophy in a Newborn


The Editor,


Transient right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) is an uncommon condition which is seen during the newborn period. Metabolic and heredofamilial diseases, maternal diabetes, acute perinatal distress, dexamethasone therapy in premature newborns for bronchopulmonary dysplasia and premature closure of ductus arteriosus may lead to transient RVH in the neonatal period.
