Arteriovenous malformations can lead to life-threatening complications, particularly in neonates. Only a few case reports document arteriovenous malformations of the umbilicus, all presenting with complications and necessitating urgent surgical intervention. We report the case of a neonate with an incidentally noted umbilical arteriovenous malformation, treated with laparoscopic assisted resection.
