Endoscopic band ligation has been a standard therapy in esophageal varix bleeding since it was first introduced in 1980s. However, technical problems have interrupted as a therapeutic management of lower gastrointestinal bleeding. We report a case of successful management of rectal bleeding with endoscopic band ligation in patient with chronic renal failure, who had been managed by hemodialysis since eight months before. Successful control of rectal bleeding was achieved by endoscopic band ligation. Three days later, round and shallow ulcer developed at the ligated site, which was improved at follow-up sigmoidoscopy and bleeding was not observed any more. He was discharged without complications. Herein, we report the band ligation as a useful method in treatment of rectal bleeding. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2001;22:229⁣232)
