    We report a case of renal arteriovenous malformation (AVM) and describe its angioarchitecture and endovascular management. A 28-year-old male patient presented with visible painless haematuria. CT of the abdomen showed a right renal AVM. Digital subtraction angiography of the right renal vessels showed an AVM of middle and lower pole segmental arteries with communication to a large saccular aneurysm, which was arising from the right main renal vein. Complete occlusion of the AVM was done by using glue (a mixture of n-butyl-cyanoacrylate and lipiodol), resulting in nonvisualisation of the aneurysm on angiography. His vital signs were stable during the procedure. Follow-up CT after 12 months showed no residual flow in the aneurysm, normal upper pole renal parenchyma and nonvisualisation of AVM. Early diagnosis of this clinical entity is of paramount importance for proper management as it can cause massive blood loss and rapid clinical deterioration. © BMJ Publishing Group Limited 2021.
