Oesophageal vascular ectasia in a patient with anaemia
This case report describes the findings of oesophageal vascular ectasia (OVE) in a patient with known gastric antral vascular ectasia, who presented with anaemia. OVE is a very rare endoscopic finding and therefore a diagnostic chall-enge. An 85-year-old male was admitted due to anaemia. He went through a gastroscopic examination where severe OVE changes were seen, along with newfound oesophageal varices. There was no need for treating the OVE, but the findings coupled with the knowledge of the varices led to the diagnosis of portal thrombosis.
