Dieulafoy's disease is an uncommon cause of upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage. We report three patients with Dieulafoy's disease treated with the endoscopic haemostatic clip application. There was no recurrent bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract after application of the clips in all three patients. Two patients survived while the third succumbed to renal failure after hypovolaemic shock. We conclude that endoscopic haemostatic clip may have a role in the treatment of Dieulafoy's disease.
