Gastric antral vascular ectasia syndrome (GAVE) is an uncommon cause of gastrointestinal bleeding. Pharmacotherapeutic and endoscopic intervention in patients with GAVE is a challenge, especially when surgery is a closed option due to an underlying severe hepatic impairment. The clinical presentation and management of a renal allograft recipient with the GAVE syndrome is described.
