Vascular anomalies are categorized into vascular tumours or vascular malformations on the basis of clinical features and histopathology. The literature regarding high flow arteriovenous malformations of the auricle is rare. A case of a patient clinically diagnosed with an arteriovenous malformation of the external ear and was managed with preoperative embolization, surgical excision and reconstruction of ear with split thickness skin graft, is presented. The pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnostic work up, radiological intervention and management options regarding arteriovenous malformations are discussed. Total cure is an illusion and rarely achieved in high flow high grade vascular malformation with nearly 98% recurrence reported in 5 years. Patient followed for next 3 months with no evidence of recurrence.
