Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS) is a rare vascular disorder with multiple haemangiomas in the skin, gastrointestinal tract and other visceral organs often associated with fatal bleeding and anaemia. We report a 13-year-old female child with multiple haemangiomas on skin and gastrointestinal tract with refractory anaemia. Awareness of this entity is necessary to prevent complications.
