Watermelon stomach is the description usually given to the endoscopic appearance of gastric antral vascular ectasia. The classical histopathological features of gastric antral vascular ectasia include; hyperplasia of the surface epithelium and the fibromuscular layer of the lamina propria associated with the presence of dilated submucosal venous channels and thrombosed capillaries. This condition can be associated with liver cirrhosis, chronic renal failure and autoimmune disorders. Herein, we report the watermelon endoscopic appearance of the gastric mucosa in a 12-year-old Saudi girl with erosive gastritis.
