[Ectopic varicosis: a rare case of gastrointestinal hemorrhage].

[Article in Russian]


The author discusses causes, diagnostics and treatment of ectopic varicosis of the gastrointestinal tract. Bleeding from these pathologically dilatedprotosystemic collateral veins at sites beyond the gastroesophagealjunction is rare, but the high lethality rate associated with this condition is a serious challenge. The author emphasizes the necessity of multicentre clinical studies yielding important data on epidemiology ofectopic varicosis for the development ofa diagnostic and therapeutic algorithm for the management of accompanying hemorrhage.
