Abstract

Pelvic arteriovenous malformations (pAVMs) are rare lesions that sometimes pose diagnostic challenges. We report on a 50-year-old woman with a pAVM presenting with only abdominal distension and bloating. The diagnostic tool was color Doppler transvaginal ultrasonography. Surgical excision of the AVM was performed, and there was no subsequent recurrence.
