Author(s): James Emmanuel, Nagaraj Sriram and Raman Muthukaruppan

Dieulafoy lesions are a rare but potentially fatal cause of Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding (UGIB). They are commonly located within the stomach with only 15% of these lesions originating from the duodenum. [1] Endoscopic intervention for bleeding Dieulafoy lesions situated within a periampullary diverticulum are technically challenging, chiefly attributable to the small size of the lesion and its obscure location. Here, we report a case of successful hemoclip application to a Dieulafoy lesion located within a periampullary diverticulum
