    Dieulafoy lesion of the esophagus causing massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding and death: a case report.
    Am J Forensic Med Pathol 2012 Jun;33(2):186-7
    Department of Forensic Science, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark.
    Dieulafoy lesion is a rare cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. We present a case report of sudden and unexpected death in a previously healthy male where autopsy revealed a classic Dieulafoy lesion with a submucosal artery protruding through a small mucosal defect in the esophagus, thereby exposing it to stress and consequent rupture. Advances in endoscopic techniques have drastically reduced mortality from Dieulafoy lesion. Read More

    Background: Massive gastrointestinal bleeding in children, mostly caused by esophageal varices secondary to chronic liver disease, is uncommon. Dieulafoy lesion in the gastrointestinal tract is a rare but important cause of gastrointestinal bleeding; massive bleeding from this lesion can be fatal unless adequate treatment is promptly initiated. We report a case of gastric Dieulafoy lesion in a 2-year old successfully treated with endoscopic hemoclipping. Read More

    Background: Dieulafoy lesion is a rare but serious cause of gastrointestinal system bleeding. An aberrant submucosal artery, which was described in 1884, causes the bleeding. The lesion can be located anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract but is most commonly found in the proximal stomach up to 6 cm from the gastroesophageal junction. Read More

Painless bleeding and abdominal pain are the most often reported symptoms. Dieulafoy lesion/dieulafoy-like lesion often cause upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract bleeding, but massive lower gastrointestinal bleeding is rare. Read More
