A 60-year-old woman suffering from heart failure was found to have Crow-Fukase syndrome. A precise cardiovascular study revealed the existence of pulmonary hypertension (PH), cardiomegaly and myocardial hypertrophy in addition to manifestations of this syndrome such as hyperpigmentation, hypertrichosis, finger clubbing, polyneuropathy, organomegaly and plasma cell dyscrasia. These findings suggest the possibility that patients with Crow-Fukase syndrome have cardiopulmonary disorders including PH and cardiomegaly which might cause some cardiovascular symptoms such as peripheral edema and finger clubbing.
