Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia Center

The UCSF Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia Center is Northern California's only facility specializing in the comprehensive screening, diagnosis and treatment of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), a genetic disorder affecting the blood vessels. We have been designated a Center of Excellence by the HHT Foundation International, Inc.

Because HHT can affect multiple parts of the body, our team includes experts in the fields of interventional and neurointerventional radiology, pediatrics, medical genetics, hematology, otolaryngology – head and neck surgery, cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, neurology, neurological surgery and pulmonology.

We trace each patient's genetic family history of HHT and work closely with his or her referring doctor to develop a treatment plan.

Our clinic is associated with the Center for Cerebrovascular Research (CCR), which studies cerebrovascular disease with a focus on vascular malformations of the brain. The CCR has a special interest in HHT, one of the few inherited causes of brain arteriovenous malformations.
