Abstract

Background: Polyps of the small intestine are a very rare pathology and they are also a reason for rare gastrointestinal bleeding.
Case report: A case of a patient with chronic anemia, periodically becoming aggravated requiring multiple blood transfusions and iron supplementation, with a large hyperplastic polyp of jejunum detected by endoscopy as a source of chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, is described.
Conclusions: Polyps of the small intestine can be a rare reason for gastrointestinal bleeding. A gastrointestinal upper endoscopy should be performed in every case of searching for gastrointestinal bleeding, with an attempt to estimate the small intestine beside the descendent part of the duodenum as far as possible.
