From the time of birth, a patient a rapidly expanding pulsatile mass in the left upper extremity. The findings are those of multiple AV fistulae; thrill, continous murmur, cutaneous angioma, and rapidly appearing trophic changes. Cyanosis and irreversible heart failure ensued, and the patient died after 20 hours of life. An aortogram revealed numerous AV fistulas within an angiomatous network vascularized by a huge subclavian artery and drained by a large subclavian vein.
