English Abstract

A 47-year-old woman presented to our hospital with chief complaints of hematuria and left flank pain. The patient denied any recent history of trauma, renal surgery or urinary tract disease. Arterial-phase CT and three-dimensional CT angiography were performed by 64-row multiple detector computed tomography (64-MDCT) and manufacturer-provided workstation. Tortuous fistulas close to the collecting system between the branches of left renal artery and vein were found on arterial phase 64-MDCT and CT angiography. The diagnosis of cirsoid renal arteriovenous malformation (AVM) was made according to CT imaging findings. The patient underwent conventional angiography and transcatheter arterial embolization for renal AVM. She remained symptom free at three-month clinical follow-up.
