Abstract

Arteriovenous malformations are the least common vascular anomalies, but they can have a worst prognosis when compared with other vascular anomalies. In this way, the authors present a case of young female with arteriovenous malformation on the left shoulder. The indication and the treatment options were discussed within national and international experts at the Conference of Vascular Anomalies in Lisbon in 2018. The authors shared their opinions and made a revision on this topic.
