Abstract Cameron lesions are linear gastric ulcers or erosions on the mucosal folds at the diaphragmatic impression in patients with a large hiatal hernia. The clinical relevance of Cameron lesions is due to their potential complications such as gastrointestinal bleeding (acute, chronic and obscure) and anemia. The diagnosis is usually made during upper endoscopy. Medical therapy is the mainstay of treatment with few cases reserved for surgical correction. Copyright 2008 S. Karger AG, Basel.
