A hemangioma is a common soft tissue tumor, usually affecting the cutaneous regions of the head and neck in infancy and childhood. A hemangioma in the gastrointestinal tract is rare occurrence which is usually found in the submucosa of the small and large intestine, but rarely in the stomach. Infrequently, multiple cavernous hemangiomas have been reported on skin and in the intestines. A 23-year-old man was admitted with hematemesis. An upper endoscopy revealed a purple colored sessile lesion at the posterior wall side of the fundus which had surface erosion and erythema. This lesion was easy to bleed when the patient retched. Another sessile lesion was detected at the greater curvature side of the upper body. The patient had two intradermal soft masses at the back and left forearm. An X-ray revealed a phebolith that suggested a cavernous hemangioma. An abdomen CT and angiography revealed that these lesions were highly suggestive of hemangioma. Gastric wedge resection was performed and the histological diagnosis was gastric cavernous hemangiomas. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2000;20:127 131)
