Abstract

A syndrome of chronic upper airway obstruction, hypoventilation, and cor pulmonale seen in 2 patients is described. These children both manifested varying degrees of CO2 retention, pulmonary hypertension, and right ventricular hypertrophy. Relief of the upper airway obstruction by tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy resulted in regression of the presenting symptoms and signs.
