The Rendu-Osler-Weber disease, also known as hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia, is an autosomal dominant inherited disease. Its main manifestations are nosebleeds and digestive tract bleeding due to angiodysplasia. The presence of arteriovenous malformations in organs such as lung, liver, brain, etc. can cause serious complications (haemorrhage, stroke, brain abscess, hypoxemia, increased cardiac output, pulmonary arterial hypertension). Diagnosis is based on clinical criteria and can be confirmed by genetic analysis...

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), or Osler- Weber-Rendu syndrome, is a rare genetic disorder with autosomal dominant inheritance, characterized by recurrent epistaxis, mucocutaneous telangiectasia and visceral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), which may lead to severe complications. The diagnosis of HHT is often delayed due to the rarity of the disease, and the variety of clinical manifestations. The management of HHT includes systematic screening for visceral AVMs at regular intervals, preventive interventions to reduce the risk of complications, and symptomatic measures...

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), or Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome (ROWS) is a very rare hereditary disease. The diagnosis is based on the clinical findings such as recurrent epistaxis, telangiectases, visceral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and family history. AVMs are found in the liver, lung or brain and could mimick the masses of these organs. Radiologic evaluation plays a critical role during diagnostic and therapeutic management of ROWS. Hence, radiologists should be aware of the diagnosis of HHT in the patients with AVMs, history of epistaxis and family history...

Osler-Weber-Rendu disease, also known as hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, is a rare autosomal dominant condition causing systemic fibrovascular dysplasia. It has an incidence of 1-2/100,000. Phenotypic variation is extreme ranging from asymptomatic to severely symptomatic, from cases with no or few mucocutaneous lesions to those with diffuse cutaneous telangiectasia. We discuss a case of Osler-Weber-Rendu disease causing diffuse cutaneous telangiectasia and hemoptysis. The patient presented with complaints of hemoptysis and was extensively examined and investigated before being diagnosed with Osler-Weber-Rendu disease...

Bilateral pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are rare and are often associated with the hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT/Osler-Weber-Rendu) syndrome. We present a woman who presented with neurological symptoms due to a cerebral abscess. On further evaluation, bilateral pulmonary AVMs were identified. The patient was diagnosed with HHT, based on positive family history and multiple cerebral AVMs recognized on subsequent catheter angiogram, in addition to the presence of bilateral pulmonary AVMs...

Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) also known as Rendu-Osler disease is a group of related disorders inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion and characterized by the development of arteriovenous malformations (AVM) in the skin, mucous membranes, and/or internal organs such as the brain, lungs, and liver. The prevalence of liver involvement is clinically estimated between 8 and 31 percent. It can be revealed by the following clinical signs : ascites, edema of the lower extremities, abdominal pain, dyspnea, and, rarely, hepatic encephalopathy and gastrointestinal bleeding associated with portal hypertension...

Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome, or hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), is an autosomal dominant vascular dysplasia characterised by mucocutaneous telangiectases and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Diagnosis is clinical and treatment is supportive. The authors demonstrate a safe anaesthetic approach for a patient with HHT. A 53-year-old woman with a left trochanteric fracture was scheduled for urgent orthopaedic surgery. She was diagnosed as having HHT and presented with recurrent epistaxis, telangiectases and gastrointestinal AVMs...

A 72-year-old female patient presented with increasing dyspnea of unclear origin classified as New York Heart Association stage III (NYHA III). Using transesophageal echocardiography a patent foramen ovale (PFO) and right heart failure could be diagnosed. Right heart catheterization revealed a large left to right shunt due to an arteriovenous malformation in the liver. Because of additional telangiectasia of the lips the presumptive diagnosis was Rendu-Osler-Weber disease. Typical nosebleeds and other symptoms of the disease were lacking and only two out of four Curaçao criteria were positive; therefore, genetic testing was performed, which verified the clinical diagnosis...

Endoglin is an auxiliary receptor for members of the TGF-β superfamily and plays an important role in the homeostasis of the vessel wall. Mutations in endoglin gene (ENG) or in the closely related TGF-β receptor type I ACVRL1/ALK1 are responsible for a rare dominant vascular dysplasia, the Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT), or Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome. Endoglin is also expressed in human macrophages, but its role in macrophage function remains unknown. In this work, we show that endoglin expression is triggered during the monocyte-macrophage differentiation process, both in vitro and during the in vivo differentiation of blood monocytes recruited to foci of inflammation in wild-type C57BL/6 mice...

Hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu disease is a rare autosomal dominant condition causing vascular dysplasia. Cerebral abscess formation, secondary to paradoxical septic emboli via HHT-derived pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (pAVMs) in this context is well documented. Herein, we present the first case of subdural empyema with this aetiology.
