Case Report

Intramuscular arteriovenous malformation of the deltoid muscle

Mehmet Dadaci, Bilsev Ince, Zeynep Altuntas, Fatma Bilgen, Pembe Oltulu.

Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) originating primarily from the skeletal muscles are very rare. Intramuscular AVMs may be cured by complete excision of the muscle and by preserving adjacent vital structures, which will help to reduce postoperative morbidity. In the current case report, we present a case that was operated due to intramuscular AVM located in the deltoid muscle, which has not been previously described in the literature, and we describe the methods of diagnosis and treatment in a 4-year-old male patient.

Key words: Intramuscular arteriovenous malformation, deltoid muscle, surgery
