Thickness of the media of pulmonary trunks from 58 children with mountain sickness were measured with micrometer. The results showed that the thickness of the media were increased coincidently with the increase of age, and PT/AT ratio. The pattern of the elastic laminae was in accordance with that of the aorta in the same group. The authors consider that these changes in mountain sickness are due to pulmonary hypertension development.
