While many causes of gastrointestinal bleeding exist, age and presenting symptoms aid in narrowing the differential diagnosis and in selecting initial diagnostic studies. Management strategies vary depending upon the diagnosis and source of bleeding and may include medical, radiographic, endoscopic, or surgical interventions.
