Acquired uterine arteriovenous malformation is a rare condition, sometimes provoking abnormal life-threatening uterine hemorrhage. Here, we present the case of a 30-year-old healthy woman who developed heavy vaginal bleeding after dilatation and suctioning of the placenta 1 month after the delivery of a nonviable fetus. An ultrasound was performed which showed the appearance of a large exacerbation of a vessel with positive fetal sounds, normal cardiac movement, and normal morphological analysis. The patient was successfully treated with unilateral superselective embolization, distal to the ovarian supply, maintaining normal supply to the uterus and ovaries restoring normal menstruation, and showed complete resolution of the arteriovenous malformation.
