Acute gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding is one of the most frequent causes for hospitalization and responsible for a major cause of morbidity and mortality among patients. Ankaferd Blood Stopper (ABS) is a herbal extract attained from five different plants Thymus vulgaris, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Vitis vinifera, Alpinia officinarum and Urtica dioica. Here we report a challenging upper GI bleeding case with a low platelet count and defective hemostasis treated endoscopically with ABS as an adjunctive drug. Copyright (C) 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
