A 20-year-old man presented with hemoptysis, epistaxis and severe fatique. Chest X-ray film revealed an abnormal shadow. On the physical examination, multiple telangiectases were found at the oral and nasal mucous membrane and tongue. Computed tomography and pulmonary angiography showed an arteriovenous fistula of the left lower lobe. The diagnosis was Rendu Osler Weber Disease. Lobectomy was performed because of the systemic supply to the large pulmonary arteriovenous aneurysm.
