Key Clinical Message

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) has been reported very rarely in imatinib-treated gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) and scleroderma/pulmonary hypertension patients. We present the first report of a case of GAVE in a chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patient after treatment with imatinib. This diagnosis should be considered in CML patients with upper gastrointestinal symptoms and anemia.
