Case. We report a case of a term pregnancyin a 33 year old with a uterine AVM and a previous transarterial embolization procedure who developed a uterine AVM during multi-agent chemotherapy for gestational trophoblastic disease. She consulted for prenatal checkup. Due to the risk of massive bleeding during labor, she underwent elective cesarean section at term and delivered a baby with good outcome.
Conclusion. This case suggests that uterine AVM in pregnancy can be managed conservatively with serial ultrasound monitoring and close follow up.
