Gastrointestinal bleeding from a small bowel lesion is uncommon, but it is the most common cause of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding and it can go undiagnosed using traditional upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. Recently, capsule endoscopy and double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) were developed as new techniques for visualization of the entire small intestine and have improved access to the lesion site in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. In this report, we describe a 49-year male presenting with melena from a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) of the proximal jejunum that was diagnosed by DBE and resected by laparoscopic surgery.
