The evolution of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVM) over time in children with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is not well defined, this malformation of which cyanosis remains one of the main symptoms requires saving embolization which is the treatment of choice. Surgery is a treatment option that remains very heavy for a population that is often very young.
