Abstract

A case of radiologically identified molar invasion into extensive arteriovenous shunts (AVSs) is described. CT and MRI revealed a large uterine mass, accompanied by multiple AVSs. Dynamic MRI and pelvic angiography demonstrated multiple trophoblastic cysts invading into the AVSs. Resected specimen confirmed the diagnosis of invasive mole. Dynamic MRI was very useful in determining the etiology of AVS.
