Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare disorder that is characterized by multiple cutaneous vascular malformations in the skin and gastrointestinal tract and is associated with intestinal hemorrhage and iron deficiency anemia. This syndrome may induce severe or fatal bleeding; however, the causes of this syndrome are unknown. We report here a case of BRBNS that was diagnosed in a 20-year-old male with chronic anemia and a past history of surgery due to cutaneous hemangioma on the shoulder and thigh. One purplish hemangioma on the stomach and multiple bluish hemangiomas on the colon were noted on the endoscopic examination. We successfully treated the GI hemangioma with endoscopic band ligation and endoscopic polypectomy. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2009;39:304-307)
