Abstract
Las malformaciones arteriovenosas pulmonares (MA VP) son comunicaciones anormales entre las arterias y las venas pulmonares. Las MAVP, están caracterizadas por cortocircuitos de derecha a izquierda de grado variable y el efecto de estas comunicaciones depende del tamaño de los vasos involucrados. Puede presentarse hipoxemia, hipocratismo digital y poliglobulia secundario al cortocircuito intrapulmonar. Presentamos el caso de un paciente femenino de 14 años de edad con MA VP pulmonar, cuyos hallazgos a la exploración física fueron hipocratismo digital y cianosis. Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PVAM) are abnormal communications between pulmonary arteries a...
