Hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), or Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by recurrent epistaxis, mucocutaneous telangiectasias, and visceral involvement including arteriovenous malformations that may develop in any organ, especially in the lung, brain, liver and GI tract. Early screening and regular follow up of patients with HHT are important to minimize the risk of development of serious sequelae. We report a case of 46-year-old female patient who had "suspected HHT" and review the literature on this rare disease.
Key Words: arteriovenous malformation; hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia; Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome
