Drawing non-embedded SVG symbol on a Web Map

I would like to draw my own custom SVG images to an ArcGIS based web map using the ESRI Javascript API. They are not embedded SVG's in HTML but are dynamically provided to me by a custom symbol server. I have tried plotting an SVG to a graphics layer using a PictureMarkerSymbol and also just using a Graphic but have been unable to get my custom SVG's to plot. ESRI's points, lines, polygons, etc. are great but are not the symbols that I need in this case. I have plotted other custom single point symbols to my web map using png's; but I would like to plot more complex symbols using SVG's. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
