    Background. In 1897, Dieulafoy was the first to characterize a gaping arteriole within the gastric mucosa causing massive hematemesis, designating it as "exulceratio simplex." A hundred years later, this vascular abnormality, now commonly referred to as a "Dieulafoy lesion," has been identified...

    Tracheal bronchus is a congenital bronchial anomaly. The diagnosis should be considered early in intubated patients. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is the newest modality for evaluating tracheal bronchus. To evaluate the utility of 16-slice MDCT in children with tracheal bronchus and...

    Recurrent and life threatening gastrointestinal hemorrhage occur rarely from Dieulafoy's lesions. Initially described in the gastric lesser curvature, these lesions have been described in other parts of the gastrointestinal tract. We report a case of acute massive lower gastrointestinal bleeding...
