Angiodysplasia (AD) is a degenerative disorder in which a vascular malformation extends to the submucosa, the mucosa, or both. In 1956, Rutter
1described the histopathologic diagnosis of AD in the GI tract. In 1960, a case of AD associated with GI bleeding was reported by Margulis et al.

2The number of reports on AD in the stomach and lower intestinal tract has increased because of the use of advanced endoscopic and angiographic techniques.
