493-494

Javier Lucas Ramos, Marta Abadía Barno, Álvaro Pezzela Risueño,

Amyloidosis is a chronic multisystem disease that could show multitude of nonspecific symptoms. Gastrointestinal amyloidosis is a very unusual cause of lower gastrointestinal bleeding and it does not usually lead the patient to death. We report a case of a 73-year-old woman who presented a severe, refractory lower gastrointestinal bleeding secondary to ileal ulcers due to amyloid deposit.
