Abstract

A case is reported of an extrauterine pelvic arteriovenous malformation involving branches of the internal iliac arteries. Cardiomegaly and a rough cardiac murmur were the clinical presentations mimicking a structural heart disease. A continuous bruit could only be detected by the diaphragm of the stethoscope applied firmly to the left lower abdomen. Multiple blood samplings from inferior vena cava, and iliac and femoral veins for determination of oxygen saturation may be necessary for suspected cases. However, selective arteriography remains the best method for diagnosing the presence, extent, and multiplicity of the lesions before surgery or percutaneous arterial embolization.
