Keywords: Arteriovenous malformation, head, pancreas, rare.
Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are clusters of abnormal arteries and vessels connected by one or more direct connections called fistula or shunt. AVM can occur in any part of the body. Pancreatic arteriovenous malformation (P-AVM) can be defined as an abnormal vascular network that develops from one or more feeding arteries, dilates early drainage vessels, and forms an arteriovenous shunt. In this paper, we wanted to represent a 45-year-old male patient admitted to our hospital due to abdominal pain with a case of AVM and a review of the literature.
