Answer

The need for consultation depends on the potential for, development and degree of end-organ damage.  Heart failure likely warrants referral to a cardiologist should be considered; similarly, neurologic symptoms likely warrant referral to a neurologist.

Once a diagnosis of RVHT is made, prompt treatment of the disease is the best protection against further end-organ damage.
