Acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding (ALGIB) is usually defined as overt bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) distal to the ligament of Treitz leading to hospitalization. It is responsible for high morbidity and an overall mortality of 21- 23%. However, more recent reports show a low mortality of 1.2%, which might be related to early endoscopic diagnosis and therapy.
