Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present a rare case of a 3-year-old child with a history of recurrent attacks of haematemesis, melena and severe anaemia. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a vascular mass at the fundus and greater curvature of the stomach, CT revealed an ill-circumscribed mass of mixed attenuation in the left upper abdomen, which was related to the fundus and greater curvature of the stomach, extending to the spleen, greater omentum and transverse colon with a homogeneous enhancement following contrast injection suggesting the diagnosis of haemangioma. Explorative laparotomy was done and partial gastrectomy together with splenectomy and omentectomy was performed. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of cavernous haemangioma.
