BACKGROUND: Successful nonsurgical therapy of uterine arteriovenous malformations is rare, with most cases being diagnosed at hysterectomy. CASE: A uterine arteriovenous malformation was diagnosed by Doppler ultrasound, and its resolution after 1 week of treatment with methylergonovine maleate was observed. CONCLUSION: Although there are case reports regarding treatment of uterine arteriovenous malformations by embolization performed by interventional radiology, to our knowledge, the noninvasive long-term management of a uterine arteriovenous malformation has not been reported.
