Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a rare finding in gastrointestinal tract usually asymptomatic, although sometimes causes gastrointestinal bleeding or pain. Even more rarely it can be found in other abdominal organs like liver, pancreas, spleen etc. We present a unique case of acute abdominal pain – a patient with torsion of arteriovenous malformation of gastroepiploic arteries with following ischemia and thrombosis causing severe pain. A search at the literature has not yielded any other case report describing similar cause of the acute abdomen.
