An unusual systemic arteriovenous malformation demonstrated by angiography arising from the left subclavian artery and eventually draining into the left subclavian vein; presented itself as a soft, pulsatile swelling in the dorsal chest wall. The excision of the tumor was carried on by a two-staged-singleoperation. The first stage included surgical ligation of the arterial blood supply and venous drainage of the tumor. In the second step, complete resection of the tumor mass was achieved successfully without any significant perioperative complication.
