Abstract

A woman of 43 yr was admitted with massive upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage and was discovered to have a benign gastric ulcer and gastrojejunal fistula. Review revealed only 7 reported cases of spontaneous gastrojejunal fistula in patients with benign gastric ulcer who had not undergone previous gastric surgery. Spontaneous fistulas from benign gastric ulcer are very uncommon, although gastrocolic fistula and gastrojejunocolic fistula are more frequent than the gastrojejunal variety. The rarity of this condition and, in this case, the diagnosis by endoscopy prompted this case report and brief review.
