Abstract

A 62-year-old-woman was admitted our hospital for treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and treated with methylprednisolon on the 9th day of admission hematemesis and melena were noted. On gastrointestinal fiberscopy examination, gastric vascular ectsia with a bleeding spot was found at greater curvature of stomach near posterior wall of the upper gastric body. After a single procedure of endoscopic band ligation (EBL), vascular ectasia successfully disappeared without any complications. EBL could be one of the effective treatments for hemorrhagicgastric vascular ectasia.
