Obesity and pulmonary hypertension (PH) are two conditions that frequently coexist in clinical practice and also the association between obesity and hypersomnolence has long been recognized. Pulmonary hypertension is more common (50% vs. 15%) and more severe in patients with OHS than in patients with OSAS. Here, we present an obese man with very severe excessive daytime sleep and very serious pulmonary hypertension, who only gave respond to AVAPS and oxygen treatment.
