Arteriovenous fistulas of the kidney are rare. They may be acquired, idiopathic or arise in congenital arteriovenous malformations. There are only few reports in the current literature describing the successful embolisation of idiopathic arteriovenous fistulas. We report a 47-year-old hypertensive female patient with a successfully embolised arteriovenous fistula. Diagnosis was made on the basis of colour duplex Doppler examination and this method enabled further successful embolisation of the fistula.
