Abstract

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osler-Weber-Rendu) disease is characterised by cutaneous, mucosal, and visceral vascular anomalies. Two patients were previously described with coronary artery aneurysms (ectasia) associated with this disease. This report describes a patient with Osler- Weber-Rendu disease in whom multiple coronary arteriovenous malformations were identified during coronary angiography. The patient presented with anginal chest pain resulting from severe anemia. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed multiple angiodysplastic lesions throughout the esophagus and stomach.
