Idiopathic PAH is rare. However, the prevalence of PAH is higher in certain patient groups, such as those with systemic sclerosis, portal hypertension, congenital heart disease and HIV infection. The prevalence of PAH is estimated at 15-52 per million. The incidences are estimated to be 1-3.3 per million per year for idiopathic PAH and 1.75-3.7 per million per year for chronic thromboembolic PH [1].
