Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is a rare cause of cyanosis in the newborn with nine previously reported cases. Typical signs at presentation include cyanosis, murmur, and congestive heart failure. Abnormality on chest x-ray is common with cardiomegaly, oligemia, and focal pulmonary density. There is a male predominance, unlike older children and adults with PAVM. Familial cases of PAVM have been reported with Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome. We report a familial case of PAVM presenting in the newborn.
