DIAZ RIOS, Ramiro et al. Intermittent rectorrhagia due to diffuse hemangioma of the rectum . Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.2, pp.158-161. ISSN 1022-5129.

Diffuse hemangioma of the rectum is a rare benign vascular lesion. The case of a 30 year-old male with intermittent rectal bleeding with an evolution of 2 years and symptoms related to chronic ferropenic anemia is presented. The rectal endoscopy was interpreted as a malignant neoplastic epithelial lesion spread throughout the rectum. The biopsy indicated that it was a rectal hemangioma. A surgical resection was successfully performed. The study of the surgical specimen concluded that it was a diffuse rectal hemangioma.

Keywords : Rectal bleeding; colorectal vascular lesion; colonic hemangioma.
