Ocular lesions in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia: genetics and clinical characteristics

Abstract: ABSTRACT: Background: The aim of our study is to study the association between eye lesions in Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) and other signs of the disease, as well as to characterize its genetics. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted of a cohort of 206 patients studied in the HHT Unit of Hospital de Sierrallana, a reference centre for Spanish patients with HHT. Odds ratios for several symptoms or characteristics of HHT and ocular lesions were estimated using logistic regression adjusting for age and sex. Results: The ocular involvement was associated with being a carrier of a mutation for the ENG gene, that is, suffering from a type 1 HHT involvement (OR?=?2.09; 95% CI [1.17?3.72]). p?=?0.012). In contrast, patients with ocular lesions have less frequently mutated ACVRL1/ALK1 gene (OR?=?0.52; 95% CI [0.30?3.88], p?=?0.022). Conclusions: In conclusion, half of the patients with HHT in our study have ocular involvement. These eye lesions are associated with mutations in the ENG gene and ACVRL1/ALK1 gene. Thus, the ENG gene increases the risk of ocular lesions, while being a carrier of the mutated ACVRL1/ALK1 gene decreases said risk.
