Gastric antral vascular ectasia (the watermelon stomach): a brief case report.
Hepatogastroenterology. 1998 Mar-Apr; 45(20):606-8.H

Abstract

Herein, the endoscopic and histological features of a case of gastric antral vascular ectasia (watermelon stomach) occurring in a 76-year-old woman are described. The condition, first recognized by Jabbari et al in 1984, is a rare but important cause of severe gastrointestinal blood loss and chronic iron deficiency anemia. Differential diagnosis from portal hypertensive gastropathy, treatment and outcome of the watermelon stomach are discussed.
