Gastric antral vascular ectasia(GAVE)and diffuse antral vascular ectasia(DAVE), first described by Jabbari et al in 1984, are a cause of gastrointestinal blood loss which presents with anemia.

 GAVE and DAVE are characterized, on endoscopy, by radial or diffuse red spots(vascular ectasia)in the antrum of the stomach.

 The causative factor of GAVE and DAVE remains unclear, but complications, such as liver cirrhosis, autoimmune disease, hypergastrinemia and chronic renal dysfunction have commonly been reported.

 While formerly patients with GAVE and DAVE often underwent partial gastrectomy, endoscopic treatment has become the first choice of therapy.
