Abstract

A 70-year-old male was referred to our department due to melena which began one month previously. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy were performed, but no signs of active bleeding were found. Therefore, capsule endoscopy was performed to check for small intestinal lesions. Capsule endoscopy revealed multiple protruded lesions and bloody intestinal fluid in a lesion in the upper ileum. Double-balloon enteroscopy revealed multiple protruded lesions suspicious of being hemangioma. Endoscopic mucosal resection of a lesion was performed, and it was finally diagnosed as capillary hemangioma. Sclerotherapy was performed by injecting polidocanol in the multiple hemangiomas. After this treatment, there was no melena and the follow-up endoscopy showed decreased size of the lesions. Thus, sclerotherapy was found to be useful in the treatment of multiple hemangiomas in the small intestine.
