The bleeding from various veins can be intense and may be mistaken for arterial haemorrhage. Several fatal cases are reported due to delay of treatment and inappropriate first aid. We describe five cases of haemorrhage from varicose veins that were treated with foam sclerotherapy. Polidocanol foam was injected in the various veins using ultrasound guidance. There was no recurrence of haemorrhage in any patient during the 17.4 months follow-up period. Foam sclerotherapy can be performed easily in an out-patient clinic setting. This method is an ideal therapy for haemorrhage from varicose veins because it mitigates problematic varicose veins.
