Tumours of Vascular Origin

  • Glyn A. S. Lloyd


Hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome) is a disease in which groups of dilated vessels are present in the skin and mucosae. The nose is commonly affected and the lesions are important because they frequently give rise to epistaxis. This condition does not require any sophisticated imaging method, and the same is true for another condition which may give rise to epistaxis: capillary haemangioma. Here the lesion is usually localised to the mucosa of the nasal septum or inferior turbinate.
