Abstract

The most common cause for gastrointestinal bleeding of small bowel origin is angiodysplasia, followed by tumors of the small intestine, and various other causes, including small bowel ulcers and aortienteric fistulas. With the advent of improved diagnostic tests, including push and sonde enteroscopy, timely endoscopic diagnosis of these rare small bowel lesions has become possible, enabling the clinician to make better therapeutic decisions. This article focuses on the rare small bowel sources of intermittent and chronic gastrointestinal blood loss.
