Abstract

The present study describe Cor Pulmonale in Chronic Pulmonary Diseases, it was observed in 5.62% of cases studied. The average duration of illness was 5.16 years. Electro-cardiograph is found to be an important tool in early detection of Cor Pulmonale. Extent and nature of the pulmonary lesion contribute more to the development of Cor Pulmonale than duration of the illness. Prognosis of cases who develop Cor Pulmonale from Pulmonary Tuberculosis is relatively more adverse.
