Abstract

Tumours of the pancreas presenting as haematemesis are rare entities, with scarce documentation in literature. We report a 50-year-old woman who presented with haematemesis secondary to gastric fundal variceal bleeding due to splenic vein occlusion by a large mucinous cystadenoma of the pancreas. We also review the literature pertaining to unusual pathologies presenting as haematemesis.
