A 16 year old man with complaints of abdominal pain, diarrhea, high fever and loss of body weight was made a diagnosis of Crohn's disease. During the administration, he had intestinal obstruction and several episodes of massive intestinal bleeding. Selective angiography of the superior mesenteric artery demonstrated the bleeding site in the ileum. Microangiography of the surgical specimens revealed abrupt interruptions of arteriae rectae in the submucosa indicating the bleeding site from the diseased intestine.
