Uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM), an extremely rare condition, is defined as an abnormal connection between artery and vein.  Although the pelvis is a common site for AVM, the uterus is involved occasionally and the true incidence is unknown. The objective of this study was to discuss diagnostic features and management options of AVMs. In this paper six cases of AVMs have been reported with a review of diagnosis and management options.
