In brief: Yes

Many pulmonary hypertension patients are diagnosed with ph in association with one or more related conditions.
Research shows that up to 30% of scleroderma patients develop at least mild ph.

In brief: Scleroderma

Yes you can develop pulmonary hypertension with crest syndrome, but it is less common than with other forms of scleroderma.
