Arteriovenous malformations are rare vascular lesions consisting of a central nidus of anomalous shunts between venous and arterial system, with a network of collateral surrounding vessels tributary of the main veins and local-regional arteries. In the head and neck, they are normally localised in the cheek, lip and tongue. The optimal treatment is represented by selective embolization associated to surgical excision. The authors describe the case of a congenital high-flow arteriovenous malformation, with a nasal root location, supplied synchronously by the branches of the ophthalmic, infraorbital and facial artery.
