Dieulafoy’s lesion (DL) is an abnormal arterial lesion in the digestive tract. We report a 21-year-old male, without any relevant his past medical and familiar history. He admitted to the ER with a history of hematemesis and melena. An upper endoscopy showed a protruding vessel without surrounding venous dilatation, active bleeding or mucosal defect. This vascular lesion was located in the anterior wall of duodenal bulb. Endoscopic ligation subsequently performed with two bands and a successful haemostasis achieved.
