Abstract

A 39‐year old woman, with a pancreatic arteriovenous malformation (AVM) which ruptured into the pancreatic duct, was treated successfully with distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy. Histological examinations revealed an AVM with extravasation into the pancreatic ducts. A review of the cases reported to date emphasizes the importance of physical signs, individual histories and angiographic studies for early diagnosis and surgery.
