A case is presented of giant renal arteriovenous malformation (AVM). A 61-year-old woman was admitted to the National Defense Medical College Hospital for further evaluation of a renal cyst. Doppler ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a giant renal AVM, although the patient had no history nor clinical sign suggesting an AVM. Under the diagnosis of a right renal AVM, the patient underwent AVM resection.
