Abstract

Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome is a rare congenital disorder characterized by multifocal venous malformations that can result in bleeding and anemia. We describe an 11-year-old girl without cutaneous manifestations who presented with gastrointestinal bleeding from lesions incompletely identified with noninvasive imaging modalities. She was successfully treated with surgical resection.
