Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare autosomal dominant inherited disorder of the vascular system. It is usually asymptomatic but when symptomatic most common presentation is epistaxis. It can involve any organs of the body like lungs, skin, liver brain, GI mucosa etc. We are reporting a case of HHT presented to us with dyspnea and severe anemia. He had arteriovenous malformations of different visceral organs and telangiectasia of skin along with presence of similar history in first-degree relatives.
