Clinical presentation
This 57-year-old white female presented for routine preventive colonoscopy. She did not report any abdominal complaints. No gastrointestinal bleeding had been noted.

Videoclip
The video recording shows a segment of the cecum. Adjacent to the orifice of the appendix one sees a slightly elevated area of angiodysplasia about 1 cm in diameter.    

Commentary
Angiodysplasia is frequently observed in the ascending colon. Because there was no prior report of gastrointestinal bleeding, no therapy was instituted at this time.
