 A 75-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of recurrent rectal bleeding and severe anemia. Colonoscopy disclosed a red spot in the cecum, measuring approximately 5 mm in size. Superior and inferior mesenteric arteriograms and endosonography did not reveal any abnormal findings. Under a diagnosis of bleeding cecal angiodysplasia, endoscopic mucosal resection was performed. Microscopic examination of the resected specimen confirmed the diagnosis. Follow-up during the following 15 months has been uneventful. Detailed information on this case and a review of 69 Japanese cases of colonic angiodysplasia during the last 10 years has been provided.
