Abstract

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) or Osler-Weber-Rendu-Disease (OWRD) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder that affects blood vessels and consequently multiple systems resulting in a tendency to bleed. Also known as vascular dysplasia, the condition is more or less diagnosed clinically and has a variable prognosis depending on prompt recognition and severity. However, there is no cure. This article will throw light on clinical features of the disease as well as its diagnosis to aid in identification and management.
