I agree Recurrent epistaxis

A 14-year-old boy is brought by his family to your clinic in Utah with a long history of recurrent epistaxis. His father also reports such a history. Of the following, which is the most likely condition consistent with these findings?

(A) Cavernous hemangioma
(B) Glomangioma
(C) Hemangioendothelioma
(D) Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome
(E) Varicose veins

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), formerly termed "Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome, " is an autosomal dominant disorder of development of the vasculature. Epistaxis may begin in childhood or later in adolescence. Punctate telangiectases of the lips, tongue, fingers, and skin generally appear in later childhood and adolescence. Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) can occur at any age in the brain, lungs, and liver.
