Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are a congenital lesion which can present in any period of life. They are slow-growing lesions. The most common site is the brain. Extracranial lesions are quite rare. They can be treated by surgical excision or by endovascular therapy. Here, we report a case of AVMs of the prevertebral space.
