Congenital pelvic arteriovenous malformation is an uncommon entity. Lack of specific signs and symptoms make a diagnosis difficult. Presented is a case who presented with severe vaginal bleeding due to arteriovenous malformation between right external iliac and internal pudendal artery requiring embolisation. If the vaginal is pulsatile or if the woman has persistant vaginal bleeding without an obvious cause, possibility of pelvic arteriovenous malformation should be borne in mind.
