Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome is a rare disorder that's characterized by multiple venous malformations of the skin and gastrointestinal tract, and these lesions usually cause episodes of occult gastrointestinal hemorrhage and iron deficiency anemia. We report here on a case of a 57-year-old woman who presented with intermittent melena and multiple cutaneous venous malformations. The endoscopic and radiologic examinations show multiple bluish polypoid venous malformations on the gastrointestinal tract, retroperitoneum, liver, mediastinum and lung. We were able to diagnose her as suffering from blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome and we treated her with iron supplementation for anemia. We report this case along with a brief review of the relevant literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2009;39:276-279)
