Gastrointestinal angiodysplasia is one of the causes of acute and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, and gastrointestinal angiodysplasia makes up 2∼6% of all the cases of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Bleeding from the ampulla of Vater is very rare. We report here on an unusual case of bleeding from angiodysplasia at the ampulla of Vater in a 58-aged woman with end stage renal failure. This lesion was successfully treated with endoscopic argon plasma coagulation. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2010;40:41-44)
Key Words: Angiodysplasia, Ampulla of Vater, Argon plasma coagulation
