Introduction: Pachydermperiostosis (PDP) is a rare multi-organ disease. In which non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used as the first line treatment. Case Report: A young male known to have PDP presented to our hospital with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. On endoscopy he was found to have multiple ulcers. Discussion: We discuss the possible association between the two diseases and possible approaches in such cases. Furthermore, our case suggests the need for a well-recognized screening program with routine upper GI endoscopies.
