We present the case of a 73-year-old woman with no relevant medical history. She was admitted for a 3-month intermittent melena. The physical exam was unremarkable. Blood tests revealed anemia (hemoglobin 7.4 g/dL), raised urea (69 mg/dL), normal platelets and coagulation. Gastroscopy was performed with active oozing bleeding in the fundus and gastric body. Endoscopic fulguration of the potential lesions with holmium laser was performed. She was discharged with resolution of the symptoms and analytical improvement. However, the patient required hospitalization two weeks later due to recurrence of melena and anemia.
