Haemorrhagic esophagitis is one of the diseases that causes gastrointestinal bleeding and its incidence has been increasing recently. Haemorrhagic esophagitis should be considered in cases of elder patients with unknown origin of anemia or haematotemesis. The main cause of reflux esophagiits is acid reflux from the stomach to the esophagus and proton pump inhibitors(PPI)are effective for therapy. Haemorrhage is usually associated with severe esophagitis(Los Angeles classification grade C or D)and long-term maintenance therapy with PPI is required to prevent the development of haemorrhgic esophagitis.
