Conclusion

Vascular lesions may cause GI bleeding, which can present as mild obscure bleeding with chronic anemia, but can be life-threatening, especially in cases with an arterial origin.

 

 

Multiphase CECT has a high diagnostic value in the detection and characterization of these lesions, and also provides information about the presence or absence of active bleeding and its source.

 

The findings on multiphase CECT help to guide the optimal treatment (endoscopic intervention, angiographic embolization, or surgery), and the timing to implement these interventions.
