    Abstract

    We present an unusual presentation of chronic mesenteric ischaemia in a patient with recurrent gastric ulceration that highlights both the importance of recognition of ischaemia as a possible aetiology in those refractory to conventional treatment and the success of percutaneous transluminal mesenteric angioplasty in these cases.
