Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding accounts for 2∼10% of chronic GI bleeding. Conventional upper and lower endoscopy can not find bleeding focus. Because early diagnosis of the bleeding focus is difficult, repeated admission and transfusion cause psychological and economical burden. Recently developed capsule endoscopy has made painless imaging of the entire small intestine possible. Capsule endoscopy as a non-invasive test will be the preferred method of small bowel evaluation. We report a case of jejunal gastrointestinal stormal tumor, in a 69- year-old woman with history of chronic bleeding for nine years, which was not detected with conventional methods, but diagnosed with capsule endoscopy.
