Combined surgical and enteroscopic interventions were employed to investigate the small intestine and the bleeding was located in the ileum, part of which was resected and examined histologically. Histology showed the presence of vasculitis. The literature of such systemic causes of gastrointestinal bleeding reviewed. Key words: vasculitis, melena, nephrotic syndrome, endoscopy, enteroscopy, Commercial interests & grant support: None (EN)
