Angioleiomyoma of the small intestine - a rare cause of gastrointestinal bleeding.

AbstractBACKGROUND:
Benign tumors are a rare cause of gastrointestinal hemorrhage of which angioleiomyomas constitute a very small minority. They have been reported in literature to present with volvulus, bleeding or intussusceptions.
CASE PRESENTATION:
An interesting case of a patient presenting with gastrointestinal bleeding from an underlying angioleiomyoma is discussed along with its management options.
CONCLUSION:
Angioleiomyoma though rare can be managed successfully by surgical and/or minimally invasive endovascular procedures.
