Abstract

Hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia, also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu disease, is an autosomal dominant disorder of fibrovascular tissue. It is characterised by the classic triad of mucocutaneous telangiectasias, recurrent haemorrhages, and familial occurrence. A 65-year-old man presented with purpuric, punctate, tiny macules on the cheeks and tongue. The skin lesions were discovered about 40 years previously. He had a family history of cutaneous telangiectasia and recurrent epistaxis. Also, he had episodes of recurrent epistaxis, gastrointestinal bleeding and anaemia. The gastroendoscopy revealed angiodysplasia of the fundus and body of the stomach.
