RIVERA, Daysi Beatriz et al. Upper gastrointestinal bleeding due to Dieulafoy vascular lesion. Rev. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.3, pp.421-428. ISSN 1692-7273.

One patient with massive upper GI bleeding due to Dieulafoy vascular lesion treated at our institution is reported. In this case, adequate control of bleeding could not be achieved by endoscopic methods, and selective arteriography and embolization was required. A review of this uncommon cause of gastrointestinal bleeding and its management is presented.

Keywords : upper gastrointestinal bleeding; vascular lesions; exulceratio simplex; Dieulafoy.
