Abstract

Bleeding from the proximal part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is not uncommon in children. Children could present with anemia secondary to chronic occult bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract or as anemia secondary to acute exsanguinations and can present in hypovolemic shock. There are various causes of upper GI bleeding in children. A systematic approach in evaluating these children is essential so that the diagnosis is made in timely manner and appropriate management is begun early.
