Abstract

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is a well-recognized albeit rare cause of gastro-intestinal (GI) bleeding. It classically presents in an elderly female as iron-deficiency anemia due to chronic blood loss. The association of GI blood loss with aortic stenosis (AS) has been popularized as Heydes syndrome (HS). We report a case of an elderly woman presenting as iron-deficiency anemia subsequently diagnosed with HS.
