Dieulafoy's lesion is an uncommon but important cause of recurrent upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Extragastric location of Dieulafoy's lesion is rare. We report a case of haemorrhagic shock due to delafoy ulcer of the duodenum. After the failure of endoscopic haemostatic treatment, and due to the hemodynamic instability, the patient was not a candidate for transarterial embolization, the emergency surgery was needed to stop the bleeding. Using minimally invasive technique, we were able to avoid radical surgery, in critical patient would have high mortality rate. Aggressive endoscopic examinations combined with the accurate treatment endoscopic, or after the failure of this, in cases of severe hemorrhagic shock, surgical approach should be adopted when Dieulafoy-like lesion is suspected as a possible cause of upper GI haemorrhage.
