Abstract
Pulmonary arteriovenous fistula is an uncommon capillary abnormality. It may be accompanied by neurological complications such as cerebral abscess and be associated with or without hemorrhagic telangiectasia. We recently experienced a case of cerebral abscess with pulmonary arteriovenous fistula(PAVF), which was not associated with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. We report this case with review of the related literature.
Key Words: Cerebral abscess, Pulmonary arteriovenous fistula
