Abstract

A patient suffering from multiple episodes of fever and chills due toseptic pulmonary emboli is reported. Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia was involving the mucous membranes of his oral cavity and the stomach but not the pulmonary vascular bed. Since no other infectious embolic sources were found and the patient's pulmonary infection was notextirpated by a prolonged course of antibiotics but only cured after surgical treatment of multiple periodontal abscesses, we speculate that gingival arteriovenous malformations being involved by periodontitiswere the source of small septic emboli.
