Blue Rubber Bleb Nevus Syndrome is a rare disorder that is characterized by multiple recurrent vascular malformations of skin and gastrointestinal tract. The affected patients may present with diverse manifestations including iron deficiency anemia.

We report this syndrome in a 22-year-old man that was referred to our hospital for iron deficiency anemia with unknown cause and vascular malformations in the skin and gastrointestinal tract. Because of stable hemoglobin level, we decided to treatment him by iron supplementation and close follow up. We report this case along with a review of literature.
