Özet

Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome is a relatively common vascular displasia of children presented with telengiectasias of skin, mucosa, and visceral organs and arteriovenous malformations. We reported a 9-year-old boy diagnosed as having Osler-Weber Rendu syndrome with his central cyanosis, clubbing, facial and nasal mucosal telengiectasias and right pulmonary arteriovenous malformation during an attack of acute rheumatic carditis. After relief of the acute rheumatic carditis attack, his arteriovenous malformation was treated with coil embolisation by cardiac catheterization. (Turk Arch Ped 2011; 46:264-6)
