A Case of Chronic Gastric Ischemia with Gastric Ulceration and Anemia
AbstractWe present the patient case of a 42-year-old woman with clinically significant abdominal pain and repeated episodes of gastrointestinal bleeding, who was ultimately diagnosed with chronic gastric ischemia with recurrent gastric ulcers. Current clinical literature suggests that gastric ischemia is more common than previously thought. A higher degree of suspicion for such relatively rare presentation may be required in the clinical setting.
