A 76 year-old man was admitted to our hospital in 2000 because of anemia of unknown origin lasting ten years, colonoscopy revealed multiple vascular ectasias the cecum to the ascending colon and an endoscopic ulrasonography showed dilatated vessels in the mucosa of the colon. Because the patient's anemia was probably caused by the vascular ectasias of the colon, the lesions were treated by endoscopic argon plasma coagulation (APC). At 3 months post APC treatment, colonoscopy showed that the treated lesions had become scars, and an endoscopic ultrasonography revealed the disappearance of dilatated vessels of the colon. APC is useful for the treatment of vascular ectasia of the colon.
