She had no family or personal history of recurrent haemorrhage or telangiectases. Her general health was unaffected. The diagnosis of generalized essential telangiectasia was made on the basis of clinical presentation and investigations.

It is probably under-reported, with patients mistakenly diagnosed with atypical hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia.
