Abstract

Dieulafoy's lesion is a rare cause of massive gastrointestinal bleeding. It is usually identified within the proximal stomach but has been reported in the esophagus, duodenum, small intestine, colon and rectum. Surgery was originally the treatment of choice for this lesion. However, recently, most case can be treated using endoscopic techniques including an injection of a sclerosing agent, clipping, band ligation, heater probe, and bipolar coagulation. We report 2 cases of a rectal Dieulafoy's lesion that were treated sucessfully by endoscopic clipping without complications.
