CONTEXT: Pancreatic arteriovenous malformations are a rare entity that can be incidentally discovered during MDCT examinations. CASE REPORT: We describe a rare case of asymptomatic arteriovenous malformation presenting at MDCT as a hypervascular mass in the pancreatic head. CONCLUSION: Pancreatic arteriovenous malformations are a rare entity, often asymptomatic, that can be correctly diagnosed by MDCT, especially with the use of specific electronic reconstructions.

Abstract

CONTEXT: Pancreatic arteriovenous malformations are a rare entity that can be incidentally discovered during MDCT examinations. CASE REPORT: We describe a rare case of asymptomatic arteriovenous malformation presenting at MDCT as a hypervascular mass in the pancreatic head. CONCLUSION: Pancreatic arteriovenous malformations are a rare entity, often asymptomatic, that can be correctly diagnosed by MDCT, especially with the use of specific electronic reconstructions.
