Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia with multiple fusiform retinal aneurysms

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by abnormalities of vascular structures involving skin, mucosal membranes, and other organs. A wide variety of clinical manifestations have been associated with HHT ranging from small telangiectasia on face causing only cosmetic problems to life-threatening visceral arteriovenous malformations leading to systemic emboli, hepatic dysfunction, and high output cardiac failure. These diverse clinical manifestations develop according to the localization and the severity of the vascular abnormalities.
Ocular involvement is common in HHT and conjunctival telangiectasia is the most common ocular lesion. Retinal telangiectasia, retinal arteriovenous malformations, and choroidal telangiectasia are other relatively rare ocular findings [1, 2, 3]. We herein present a case of HHT with bilateral multiple retinal fusiform aneurysms and conjunctival telangiectasia.
