Bleeding from ectopic varices is rare and accounts for only 1% and 5% of all variceal bleeding. However, once the bleeding starts, it becomes difficult to control and is sometimes fatal. We faced a 65-year-old man with ruptured duodenal varices and injected N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate into the spurting duodenal varices. As a result, oozing was successfully controlled. Subsequently, the patient remained hemodynamically stable, and no repeat -butyl-2-cyanoacrylate injection was needed. He was finally discharged one week later and has been followed-up for the last one year with no signs and symptoms to suggest any recurrence of bleeding.
