Abstract

We present a case of lipohyperplasia of the ileocaecal valve causing intermittent intestinal bleeding visualized by Doppler ultrasound of the lower abdominal quadrant as an intestinal mass with intralesional arteriovenous fistula. These findings, never described before, are suggestive of highly vascularized lesions of the ileocaecal region and their recognition may avoid the need to perform an angiographic study of the superior mesenteric artery.
