Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu disease, is a rare autosomal dominant vascular disorder involving arteriovenous malformation. HHT is characterized by recurrent epistaxis, cutaneous telangiectasia, and visceral arteriovenous malformations. Hepatic arteriovenous malformation can lead to high output heart failure.
