ABBREVIATIONS USED IN THIS ARTICLE

AVM = Arteriovenous malformation; HHT = Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia; OPD = Outpatient department; PA = Posteroanterior.

A 42-year-old woman, who was a known case of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), came to the outpatient department (OPD) with the given chest X-ray posteroanterior (PA) view. Multiple organs were involved. She also had pulmonary artery hypertension. Initially, the chest X-ray (Fig. 1) was thought to be because of the artifact. On inquiry, it was found that she had a history of arteriovenous malformation (AVM) for which 10–15 embolization over the period of 1 year was done. The X-ray lesions which are present in both lungs, right paracardiac (two in number) and left-side lesions (five in number; one large in the left mid-zone, three paracardiac, and one infracardiac), were basically the coils that were put during embolization.
