Arteriovenous malformation of the pelvic organ is a very rare cause of massive uterine bleeding. But, it is important to consider in the assessment of a patient with abnormal uterine bleeding because accurate diagnosis can allow appropriate treatment to be planned and avoid hysterectomy in women who wish to retain their reproductive capacity. This malformation may be congenital or acquired. In the past, the diagnosis is usually made retrospecively after hysterectomy, however, recently it may be made before management by ultrasound, doppler ultrasound, pelvic angiography, magnetic resonance imaging, etc. We have experienced two cases of arteriovenous malformation of the uterus, which is presented with a brief review of the literatures.
