Abstract

Hemangiomas of the large bowel are very rare and usually occur in the rectosigmoid. A large cavernous hemangioma of the colon was demonstrated in a 9-month-old child who presented with recurrent lower gastrointestinal tract bleeding. Barium examination demonstrated an annular lesion of the hepatic flexure. Computed tomography demonstrated the extent of the lesion, and contrast enhancement suggested the vascular nature of the tumour before a laparotomy was performed to remove the tumour.
