Abstract:
We report the case of an asymptomatic arteriovenous malformation (AVM), extending from the forearm into the palm, in an 11-yearold boy. A debulking procedure was performed meticulously dissecting the lesion from the involved structures. The post-operative course was uncomplicated and no evidence of recurrence was noted at eighteen months follow-up. Extensive AVMs involving structures vital for hand function may be asymptomatic. Clinical follow-up is paramount, due to the inherent risk of recurrence.
