The case of a 51-year-old man presented with intermittent diplopia, headache and family history of Rendu-Olser-Weber disease , also defined heredirary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), is described. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed an enhancing right occipital mass with surrounding edema. Computerized tomography of the chest identified pulmonary arteriovenous fistlae. The physiopathology of HHT and the treatment of the cerebral lesions are discussed.
