Angiodysplasia (vascular malformations) of the colon presenting as an acute abdomen

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Angiodysplasia (vascular malformations) of the colon is extremely rare in children, and, as in adults, present with lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Here we report an unusual pediatric case of angiodysplasia of the terminal ileum and cecum presenting as an acute abdomen with radiological features suggestive of lymphoma. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
