Diffuse cavernous hemangiomas of the rectum are benign and rare tumors of the digestive tract, sometimes responsible for recurrent gastrointestinal bleedings. They can be unrecognized, causing diagnostic and therapeutic delay. Treatment is essentially surgical. We report a new observation of a cavernous hemangioma of the rectum, revealed by recurrent rectal bleeding and diagnosed by colonoscopy combined with imaging, and treated surgically by rectal resection.
