Gastric carcinoid tumor is a rare neoplasm that occupies less than 1% of total gastric tumor. Especially, gastric carcinoid tumor with hemorrhage has been very rare. A sixty-three-year old male patient was admitted to the hospital because of hematemesis and melena. On the endoscopic examination, a 2 cm-long polypoid mass with central ulcer and hemorrhagic erosions was seen on the anterior wall of the mid-body without active bleeding. Endoscopic ultrasonography revealed that the lesion was limited to submucosa without evidence of metastasis to adjacent lymph node. We experienced a case of gastric carcinoid tumor accompanied with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. The patient underwent extended wedge resection and omentectomy under the diagnosis of type 3 carcinoid tumor. This tentative diagnosis was based on clinical and pathological findings. We report a case of gastric carcinoid with bleeding that is probably type 3. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2004;29:514⁣519)
