Periorbital arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are congenital lesions that may cause significant morbidity such as amblyopia, cosmetic disfigurement, or chronic pain. Due to the rarity of these lesions, they are frequently misdiagnosed and treated inappropriately. We managed a 6-year-old girl with preseptal AVM by endovascular embolization followed by complete surgical excision after 2 days. She was previously diagnosed as capillary hemangioma and was being treated with intralesional steroid injections and oral propranolol. Neuroimaging revealed an AVM fed by the branches of both external and internal carotid arteries and drained by the superior ophthalmic vein. Endovascular embolization with glue followed by complete surgical excision of the lesion was done. The resultant cosmetic and functional outcome was gratifying. Diagnosis and management of periorbital AVM remain a challenge requiring a multidisciplinary approach involving interventional radiologist and trained oculoplastic surgeons. Combined endovascular embolization followed by surgical excision proved safe and effective.
