[Water melon stomach or antrum gastritis--differential diagnostic aspects].
Z Gastroenterol. 1994 Sep; 32(9):493-6.ZG

Abstract

The gastric-antral-vascular-ectasia (GAVE), the "Watermelon-stomach", is a capillary ectasia of the antrum mucosa. It appears as longitudinal intensive redness of the mucosa. This endoscopic picture is caused by fibromuscular obliteration of the lamina propria and vascular ectasia with fibrinthromby. The pathogenesis of the disease is unknown. Clinical manifestation is chronic blood-loss with consecutive anaemia. The "Watermelon-stomach" is often not recognized and mistaken as "refractory antrumgastritis". Laser-coagulation is a not-operative therapy of GAVE.
