Intramural duodenal haematoma is a rare complication of endoscopic biopsy. Though other causes such as blunt abdominal trauma are more common, it remains a rare problem in paediatric population. In this article, we report a patient who developed intramural duodenal haematoma following an endoscopic biopsy that was performed to look for evidence of gut graft versus host disease.
