Uterine Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) is a rare disease and is usually an acquired disorder which can remain asymptomatic or cause life-threatening bleeding. Prompt diagnosis and management in the appropriate clinical setting is crucial. Imaging can diagnose and sometimes predict the possibility of future severe bleeds. Embolization is the mainstay of treatment, however should be performed using proper techniques of selective embolization avoiding physiological blood vessels supplying normal structures.
