Vascular lesions that may be found in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension associated with congenital heart disease. (a) Medial hypertrophy only; (b) medial hypertrophy associated with abnormalities of the internal elastic lamina (arrow) and intimal proliferation leading to a marked reduction of the lumen; (c) medial hypertrophy and intimal fibrocellular proliferation with an excentric residual lumen (thrombotic lesion).
