It is a common cause of otherwise unexplained gastrointestinal bleeding and anemia. Patients with ten or more angiodysplasia lesions had also higher transfusion requirements and lower hemoglobin levels, but we found no differences in the number of therapeutic procedures or rebleeding rate between both groups. Interestingly, there was not mortality among these patients, and most of them had no sign of rebleeding after one year.
