Gastrointestinal polyps are described as abnormal lesions that originate in the gastric epithelium or sub mucosa and protrude into the stomach lumen. It may present as an isolated lesion, or could be multiple as part of juvenile polyposis. It could be hereditary or acquired; hamartomatous or hyperplastic in structure; sessile or pedunculated in shape and of benign or malignant origin. Rectal lesions are the commonest in children but gastric polyps are rarely described in this age group, especially in those less than five years old [1]. Clinical presentation of gastric polyps in children varies widely, from incidental endoscopic finding to massive gastrointestinal bleeding [1]. We report a case of unusual upper gastrointestinal bleeding causing severe anaemia requiring blood transfusion secondary to gastric polyp in a young child.
