This article focuses on congenital arteriovenous malformations involving the pelvis and retroperitoneum. Congenital arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the retroperitoneal and pelvic organs are uncommon. The article focuses on a patient with extensive cirsoid aneurysms involving the uterus, parametrium, both kidneys, retroperitoneal space, and pancreas. Arteriovenous fistulas may be congenital or acquired. Congenital AVMs arise from an anomalous differentiation in the primitive capillary plexus, and they tend to be multiple.

    OBJECTIVE: Angiodysplasia of the colon is a distinct vascular abnormality characterized by focal accumulation of ectatic vessels in the mucosa and submucosa. To investigate whether angiogenesis contributes to the pathogenesis of human colonic angiodysplasia, we examined the expression of basic...
