A developmental arteriovenous malformation of the right arm was recognized in a 1-year-old rhesus monkey. The diagnosis was based on physical findings, ultrasound, and angiography. Treatment consisting of therapeutic transcatheter embolization using polyvinyl alcohol was performed with partial success. Necropsy revealed a lesion that was limited to the skin and subcutis. An abnormal vascular pattern was present leading to and within the lesion.
