OBJECTIVE: To report a rare case of hematuria caused by an arteriovenous fistula which may be a urological emergency.
METHODS: We describe the medical history, physical examination, complementary tests performed and their results, as well as the treatment applied in an adolescent with hematuria.
RESULTS: Congenital arteriovenous fistula was diagnosed and treated by percutaneous embolization with immediate stop of hematuria.
CONCLUSION: Non-traumatic renal arteriovenous fistulae are rare, even more if they present with gross hematuria. We present a case of a life-threatening emergency caused by one of them the treatment of which was possible by embolization, avoiding surgery.
