Introduction: Dieulafoy’s lesion of the small bowel is an uncommon cause of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding that often recurs after endoscopic treatment. Material and methods: we report an observational, descriptive, retrospective, single-center study in 15 patients with small bowel bleeding who were diagnosed with a Dieulafoy’s lesion by capsule endoscopy or double-balloon enteroscopy. Results and conclusions: all patients underwent combined endoscopic treatment. During a median follow-up of 33.5 months (range, 2-145), three of the 12 cases that stayed in follow-up (25 %) recurred, all within 48 hours after treatment. Two were successfully re-treated with a repeat endoscopic procedure.
