Appendiceal causes of lower gastrointestinal bleeding are rare, and identification of the bleeding site is critical. Identification of the bleeding site can be difficult. The differential diagnosis of bleeding in the appendix includes diverticulum, appendicitis, angiodysplasia, Crohn's disease, and appendiceal intussusception, which leads to mucosal erosion and vascular exposure by underlying inflammation. Laparoscopic surgery is commonly performed as a therapeutic procedure for the appendix, also can be a valuable tool in the diagnosis and treatment of hemorrhaging from the appendix. Appendiceal bleeding is rare, and laparoscopic management cases are not widely reported. Herein, we report a case of successful laparoscopic management of appendiceal bleeding diagnosed by colonoscopy with a review of the literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2008;37:312-315)
