Abstract: Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare but life-threatening disease characterized by multi system telangiectasias and arteriovenous malformations (AVM). Complications in adults have been reported extensively, but neonatal (NN) complications have only been published in incidental case reports. In this paper, we present a literature review on NN pulmonary AVM related to HHT, following our own experience with a NN death due to this disease. As prenatal diagnosis of pulmonary AVM is feasible, we recommend that a family history of HHT should be an indication for expertise prenatal anomaly scanning, in order to organise optimal NN support at birth.
