Abstract

A case of chronic gastrointestinal hemorrhage caused by a small jejunal arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is reported. Treatment by endovascular embolization was temporarily successful. Subsequently, the patient underwent laparoscopic resection, guided by intraoperative catheter localization with methylene blue. Histopathology confirmed a true AVM. Eighteen months after treatment, the patient is free of symptoms. Literature of jejunal AVMs is reviewed.
