The hypertensive neonate

Clin Perinatol. 1988 Sep;15(3):567-85.


Hypertension in the neonate usually is associated with renal vascular and parenchymal disease or with chronic lung disease. Antihypertensive medications effectively lower blood pressure and often over time may be discontinued; however, significant structural or functional renal abnormalities may persist.
