In 1884 Gallard wrote the first description of a patient with a Dieulafoy's lesion [1]. The lesion's name, however, comes from Paul Georges Dieulafoy (1839-1911), a professor of pathology at the Faculty of Medicine in Paris. In 1898 Dieulafoy described several patients with fatal GI hemorrhage and a bleeding gastric vessel without associated ulceration [2,3]. He named the lesion exulceratio simplex. Other names and descriptions can also be found in the literature and include gastric aneurysm, caliber-persistent artery, cirsoid aneurysm, and submucosal arterial malformation.
