The diagnosis of PAVM should be considered in infants with severe cyanosis without a structural cardiac lesion or pulmonary hypertension, after excluding other causes of cyanosis, such as parenchymal lung disease and the rare methemoglobinemia (1, 4).
However, until the present time, its efficacy for the treatment of PAVM has not been clearly demonstrated.
Contrast echocardiography may be a useful non-invasive technique for detecting PAVM and the interferon alpha may be first treatment option for patients with IHHE and PAVM.
