Abstract

Five consecutive patients with Whipple's disease exhibited intestinal blood loss at the time of their initial presentation. Three had gross intestinal bleeding and the other 2 had occult bleeding with microcytic anemia. Although not generally emphasized, Whipple's disease needs to be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding.
