Arteriovenous malformation of the external ear

Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) involving the external ears is relatively uncommon in adults. Arteriovenous malformations typically present during childhood and rarely manifest during adulthood in the head and neck region. Symptomatic arteriovenous malformations often pose difficult therapeutic challenges. We report a case of large arteriovenous malformation of the external ear in a 21-year-old female.
