Our resource-limited environment notwithstanding, extensive scientific work has been published about the causes of upper gastrointestinal bleeding in our locality. Interestingly however, gastric leiomyoma is most uncommonly mentioned as one of the findings in these publications. This paper, therefore, seeks to document gastric leiomyoma as a rare cause of bleeding in our environment and highlight the need for deployment of appropriate radiology and endoscopy techniques in diagnosing upper gastrointestinal bleeds.
