What is Mallory-Weiss syndrome?

A condition where repeated vomiting or retching causes a tear in the lower end of the esophagus tissue (also called a Mallory-Weiss tear).

  • Vomited blood

  • Vomiting blood after drinking large amounts of alcohol

  • Black, shiny stool

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Seizure

Questions your doctor may ask to check for Mallory-Weiss syndrome

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose Mallory-Weiss syndrome

  • Is there blood in your vomit after repeated throwing up?

  • Did you vomit blood?

  • Did you vomit blood after drinking a lot of alcohol?

  • Are your stools black and shiny like hair?

  • Are you feeling nauseous or have you been vomiting?

Treatment for Mallory-Weiss syndrome

This condition typically heals by itself without treatment in most cases. If bleeding is severe, a endoscope (a flexible tube with a camera and light at the end) may be inserted to put a clip to close the tear or use an injection or heat treatment stop the bleeding.
