Title Cavernous hemangioma with localization in the small intestine - A rare reason for acute bleeding
Author N. Penkov, Y. Asenov, P. Gerzilov, Damyan Damyanov
Hemangiomas of the gastrointestinal tract are rare, accounting for only 0,05% of all intestinal tumors. The most common clinical presentation is gastrointestinal bleeding which is usually occult and the topic remains unclear. We present a 75-year-old female with symptoms of acute gastrointestinal bleeding manifested in collapses, melaena and anemia. Enteroscopy found a polypoid formation with central ulcerative defect  located at the proximal jejunum. A local excision of the formation with subsequent suture of the small intestine was performed. The postoperative period was uneventful and she diascharged home with stable hemodynamic and hematologic parameters
