This usually dianosed when small amounts of blood appear in the emesis after someone has been vomiting, with no blood in the initial episodes of vomiting. As Dr. Yoder notes, it is caused by tears in the esophagus from the trauma of retching and/or vomiting. It is usually self-limited and requires no specific treatment.

It is characteristically associated with GI bleeding from the site. The diagnosis is made at endoscopy.
