5% of patients with HIV develop phtn. The good thing is that patients with HIV tend to respond better to treatment than other patients with phtn. Good luck and have a ph specialist see you...

In brief: Slight
There is an approximately 1 in 200 risk of getting pulmonary HTN associated with HIV and of course the prognosis is worse with this combination should it occur but treatment is available.
Early diagnosis does lead to better outcomes.
