Résumé

Nous rapportons une série de dix patients chez lesquels un « syndrome d’Ectasies Vasculaires Antrales » a été découvert lors d’un bilan endoscopique. Sept patients présentaient une anémie ferriprive chronique et ont bénéficié d’un traitement endoscopique. Les aspects clinique, physiopathologique, histologique et endoscopique sont discutés à la lumière de la littérature.
