The authors report the case of a 13-year-old girl with a painful vulvar swelling and abnormal vaginal bleeding, increasing in size after trauma. With MRI (GE Signa HDx 1.5 Tesla), it is diagnosed as an arterio-venous malformation arising from the left superior femoral artery. It is treated by embolisation using a coil.
