Iatrogenic Mallory-Weiss tear.
A 53-year-old woman underwent endoscopy for suspected duodenal ulceration.
During the procedure she retched. On scope withdrawal, retroversion in the
fundus showed an oozing Mallory-Weiss tear. The tear is in the 5 o'clock
position in relation to the endoscope and is gaping widely open. The
patient suffered no after-effects.
