Abstract

Arteriovenous malformation is a vascular malformation with fast-flow shunt from the artery to the vein. Extracranial arteriovenous malformation in the head and neck area is rare disease compared to other vascular malformations such as venous malformation or lymphatic malformation. Extracranial arteriovenous malformations especially on face can cause aesthetic problems, therefore surgeons should consider an importance of cosmetic outcome and choose appropriate treatment plan. We report a case of 51-year-old male who presented with enlarged nasal tip diagnosed arteriovenous malformation. This case showed successful outcome after combination therapy consisted of superselective embolization and surgical resection.
