Abstract
Dieulafoy lesion is an uncommon cause of gastrointestinal bleeding, reported to be only 2% of acute or chronic upper gastrointestinal bleeding episodes. Bleeding occurs from a small mucosal erosion involving an unusually large submucosal artery in an otherwise normal mucosa. It is associated with massive, life threatening hemorrhage and is difficult to diagnosis. In most cases the lesion is encountered in the proximal stomach, antrum, duodenum, colon and rectum. In particular, extragastric Dieulafoy lesion is an extremely rare source of intestinal bleeding. In Korea, no case of bleeding from a Dieulafoy lesion of the small intestine has been previously reported. We experienced one case of bleeding from a jejunal Dieulafoy lesion, which was confirmed by the pathologic examination of the resected specimen, and report here.
