Abstract

Gastrointestinal bleeding is a life-threatening manifestation of intestinal tuberculosis that is generally attributed to oozing of blood from the mucosal ulcers. We report a case of intestinal tuberculosis presenting with massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding from jejunal artery pseudoaneurysm diagnosed with angiography and successfully embolizated by histoacril (glue).
