Due to inheritance of an autosomal dominant genetic mutation, patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HTT) have an increased risk of harboring a cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM). They are also significantly more likely to have multiple AVMs. The natural history of AVMs in patients with HHT as well as their rate of hemorrhage is not clearly defined. Furthermore, spontaneous regression of such lesions has been reported. Treatment of cerebral AVMs in patients with HHT presents a particular challenge, especially with detection of incidental lesions following screening of asymptomatic patients. The management of HHT in two pediatric patients in whom hemorrhaging from a cerebral AVM occurred but who also had other lesions is presented here. Both patients were treated with stereotactic radiosurgery.
