The histological diagnosis of angiodysplasia is one of the most difficult problems in G.I.T. pathology. These lesions are presumed to be degenerative in nature, commonly found in population over 60 years of age and rarely in young patients. So, diagnosis of angiodysplasia in this age group is even more difficult. We present a case of massive bleeding from colonic angiodysplasia in a 22-year-old female to increase awareness of this uncommon but potentially life threatening cause of lower intestinal bleeding in younger age group.
