    Abstract

    Four cases of Dieulafoy's vascular malformation of the caecum are reported. Three were associated with massive large bowel haemorrhage, one of which was fatal. The remaining case had a calibre persistent submucosal artery within the caecum that was found incidentally in a resection specimen. This vascular malformation should be considered when dealing with specimens resected for massive lower gastrointestinal bleeding.
