SALINAS, Carolina et al. Severe upper gastrointestinal bleeding caused by Cameron ulcers. Case report. [online]. 2016, vol.64, n.1, pp.155-158. ISSN 0120-0011.

A case of an elderly woman with upper gastrointestinal bleeding and hypovolemic shock, secondary to Cameron ulcers, is presented. Since these injuries are characterized by showing chronic hemorrhage medical profiles chronic with no apparent impact a review of this exotic cause of massive gastrointestinal bleeding with hemodynamic impact is performed. These mucosal ulcers are formed due to abrasion during the contraction of the diaphragm in the breathing movements, which in turn produces chronic blood loss.
