The article is dedicated to the results of complex diagnostics and treatment (including the new methods of enteroscopy) of gastrointestinal bleeding with unknown source. From 14.02.2007 to 19.04.2017 the source of bleeding was revealed in 173 (82,7%) of 209 patients, including small bowel bleeding in 154 (89,0%) patients. The most frequent sources of bleeding were vessel malformations in 39,6% of patients and small bowel tumors in 30,5% of patients. Endoscopic treatment was performed in 32 (21,7%) cases, surgical treatment - in 41 (27,9%) cases, conservative treatment - in 74 (50,4%) cases.
