Hemangiomas of the cecum. Colonoscopic diagnosis and therapy.


Five cases of hemangiomas of the cecum and gastrointestinal bleeding are presented. All were demonstrated by colonscopy after more conventional diagnostic methods failed. The hemangiomas were bright red, flat lesions clearly seen through the colonscope. They were successfully treated by electrocoagulation. All patients in this series had some type of associated cardiac or vascular disease. These patients may represent a syndrome of gastrointestinal blood loss of obscure cause, hemangiomas of the cecum, and cardiovascular disease.
