We report a patient presenting with melena. Endoscopic examination showed gastric fundal varices as well as colonic varices. The latter is rarely encountered and is usually associated with portal hypertension. On angiography there appeared to be a splenic vein thrombosis which is only reported once earlier as a cause of colonic varices. A short review of the literature concerning colonic varices is added.
