Core Tip We present a case of blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS). This is the 12th Chinese patient and the first female from the Chinese Mainland reported in the English literature. BRBNS is a rare disease characterized by multiple venous malformations and hemangiomas in the skin and visceral organs. The most common symptoms are gastrointestinal bleeding and secondary iron deficiency anemia. We summarize the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, differential diagnosis and therapies of the disease. In a patient with gastrointestinal bleeding and multiple hemangiomas, a diagnosis of BRBNS should be considered and a systemic examination is necessary. An early diagnosis will improve the patient’s quality of life.
