Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia in the colon: a novel cause of rectal bleeding.

Abstract

Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (epithelioid haemangioma) is an uncommon but distinctive lesion seen principally in the skin. A case of severe gastrointestinal haemorrhage in a 63 year old male is reported, which necessitated a right hemicolectomy.

This is the first reported case of this entity in the large intestine.
