Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome).This condition is dominantly inherited, and is characterized by multiple telangiectases in the skin and mucous membranes. The nasopharyngeal and bronchial mucosa are other sites of involvement, giving presentations of epistaxis and hemoptysis respectively. Iron deficiency anemia is another common presenting feature, because these telangiectases can occur anywhere within the gastrointestinal tract.
