Abstract

A 23-month-old girl with Osler-Weber-Rendu (OWR) disease manifested by hemoptysis died of massive pulmonary hemorrhage. Autopsy showed predominant respiratory tract involvement, but telangiectatic vessels were also present in other sites. Skin lesions were absent. A grandfather had died after bleeding by mouth following physical exertion. This disease seldom appears in children and hemorrhage usually manifests after 30 years of age.
