We report a case of postoperative inferior mesenteric arteriovenous fistula. Arteriovenous fistula represents a rare disease. Symptoms are due to portal hypertension and distal ischemy. Treatment of these fistulas is embolization. Surgery is possible by ligature or excision of the fistula because vascularisation is obtained by Riolan arcade and hypogastric artery.
