ABSTRACT
We describe the case of a woman who showed an unclear anaemia. The patient suffered of aortic valve stenosis and we also found an intestinal bleeding from angiodysplasia. So we put the diagnosis of Heyde’s syndrome and we treated with mesenteric angiography and embolization. The clinical case allows to assert that in presence of the anaemia its causes must always be carefully investigated even in elderly patients.
