A case of familial hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osler-Rendu-Weber disease) with aneurysms of the abdominal aorta and left iliac artery is presented. The aneurysms were successfully resected. The association between this rare disease and large vessel aneurysms is discussed. Specific problems in the management of this particular case are aired.
