Esophageal varices
Abnormal, enlarged veins in the lower part of the esophagus, the tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach. These most commonly occur when blood flow to the liver is blocked, leading to backup in the esophageal veins. Causes include severe liver disease, blood clots, and certain parasitic infections. This is very dangerous, due to risk of life threatening bleeding.
