Angiodysplasia has been recognized as an important cause of lower gastrointestinal bleeding, but it is difficult to confirm the lesions. Angiodysplasia in the small bowel could be the most probable cause of bleeding particularly in the elderly patients when usual methods fail to document the focus. Small bowel angiodysplasias have been diagnosed by angiography and/or surgery at the sites where usual endoscope could not reach, and treated by medical therapy, angiographic embolization or surgery. We experienced a case of a bleeding angiodysplasia in the terminal ileum in a 51-year-old man who was taking anti-platelet agents. The lesion was diagnosed by colonoscopy, and bleeding was easily controlled with hemoclipping. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2004;28:197⁣201)
