In brief: Cause of AVM

Renal arteriovenous malformations (avms) are abnormal communications between the arteries and veins in the kidney.
Either you are born with this condition or you acquire it somehow. The acquired form usually happens after a kidney biopsy (putting a needle into the kidney to get a tissue sample). Treatment can be tailored to the individual patient. Options range from observation to causing it to.
