Significant lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage from an ulcerated appendiceal stump after remote uncomplicated appendectomy is reported. The diagnosis was established by pathologic examination of the surgical specimen, but the area of bleeding was localized by preoperative colonoscopy. Angiography or isotope scan might also have identified the site of more rapid bleeding.
