ABSTRACT
The article presents a study of a 57-year-old man with melaena. He was subjected under oesophagogastroduodenoscopy which revealed a solitary polyp with long stalk from the bulb into the third duodenum. Attempts to remove the polyp failed, and a second endoscopy was scheduled. However, the polyp disappeared while the false stalk was retracted. His vital signs and haemoglobin level did not change and he recovered without any intervention.
