Dieulafoy-like lesion is a relatively uncommon disease which is a potential source of life-threatening gastrointestinal bleeding. The lesion comprises mainly of an abnormally large submucosal artery that protrudes through a small mucosal defect. The lesion is frequently found at distal portion of gastroesophageal junction but may occur anywhere in gastrointestinal tract including small bowel, colon and rectum. Moreover bleeding from dieulafoy-like lesion of rectum is very reae. It has been reported that rectal Dieulafoy-like lesion is very rare source of lower gastrointestinal bleeding and its pathogenesis may be associated with constipation. Recently, endoscopy has an important role in the diagnosis and treatment (including injection and coagulation therapy) of bleeding from Dieulafoy-like lesion. We herein report a case of a patient who presented wih massive hemorrhage from a small rectal ulcer with adherent blood clots. Bleeding was controlled with endoscopic treatment by utilizing bipolar electrocoagulation without complication and recurrence.(Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2000;21:577-580)
