Abstract

Uterine arterio-venous malformation is described infrequently as a cause of abnormal and heavy vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain or recurrent abortions in a reproductive age women. Only few cases have been reported in the literature. A 22-year-old women presented with complaint of heavy bleeding during periods was misdiagnosed as a case of molar pregnancy due to the abnormal myometrial vascularity. She was managed subsequently with uterine artery embolization. Management of uterine AVM depends on the accurate diagnosis, the clinical status and the future reproductive plans.
