Abstract

Hemoptysis due to pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is rare in pediatric patients, but it must be included in the differential diagnosis of hemoptysis after other etiologies are excluded. We present a case of an 11- yr-old girl who presented with massive hemoptysis due to a PAVM.
