To the Editor: A 35‐year‐old man born in Dire Dawa, Ethiopia, with childhood exposure to swimming in rivers, migrated to Australia 18 years ago. He presented with recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding. His index gastroscopy revealed portal hypertensive gastropathy and large oesophageal varices with high risk stigmata of recent bleeding requiring banding. Abdominal ultrasonography and transient elastography excluded liver cirrhosis.
