Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) or Osler-Weber-Rendu Syndrome is an inherited disorder that causes development of abnormal blood vessels in the body.  The most common feature of HHT is nosebleeds that occur when these blood vessels rupture inside the nose. People with HHT can also develop these fragile blood vessels in other parts of the body including the lungs, brain, GI system and the liver.  Click here to read more and see pictures from last year's inaugural event!
