Abstract
Arteriovenous malformation in the gastrointestinal tract is very rare in children. However, when present they are frequently a source of either acute and massive, or chronic occult hemorrhage, and may be difficult to diagnosis. In reviewing Korean literature, only 2 cases has been reported in adults. We have experienced a rare case of arteriovenous malformation in a 1 year and 10 month-old female infant who presented with a history of two episodes of melena. Barium enema showed ill-defined mass shadow protruding into the cecum, and resection of cecum with ileocolostomy was performed. Pathologic diagnosis was a vascular malformation in the cecum, and related literatures were reviewed.
Key Words: Arteriovenous malformation, Melena, Cecum
