Abstract

It is unclear whether pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs) in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia develop later in life or are preformed in childhood. We show that the prevalence of PAVMs in children is similar to that in their parents, providing evidence against de novo PAVM formation in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.
