Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) is thought to be a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for the clinicians and radiologists. A 46-year-old woman complaining of intermittent melena for 3 months was admitted. After extensive investigations, a vascular lesion located in the ileum, diagnosed as intestinal lymphangiohemangioma pathologically, was found by CT angiography (CTA) and selective arterial angiography. The value of CTA to the diagnosis of OGIB is showed.
