These telangiectases occur in various organs of the body such as the lungs, brain, liver, GI tract, nose, mouth, lips, fingers and toes. The HHT Foundation supports ongoing medical research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of HHT, and offers patient education materials and referrals from a web site and through a toll-free number and an international number. Educational information for medical professionals and for patients is available by mail, via the web site and by newsletter.
