PURPOSE: Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are a rare clinical entity, especially when found in isolation with no underlying etiology. Extensive literature reviews suggest that pulmonary AVMs are symptomatic in 91% of cases, with dyspnea in 82% and cyanosis in 79% of patients. Furthermore, 70% are also associated with Osler Weber Rendu Syndrome.
