Abstract

We describe a rare case of a large renal arteriovenous malformation in a patient with von Willebrand disease. Initial attempts at technically challenging embolization failed requiring a nephrectomy. Extra-intestinal vascular malformations are rare in von Willebrand disease. However, there is more recent evidence of von Willebrand factor's regulatory role in angiogenesis and vascular malformations.
