What Causes Dark Brown Vomit?


Dark brown vomit can be caused by bleeding, particularly if it looks like coffee grounds. This is usually a result of bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract due to peptic ulcers or torn blood vessels, and it is a condition that requires immediate medical attention.

Brown vomit frequently occurs when a person regurgitates brown food that he/she ate. Blood in vomit can also appear brown and bile that comes up with vomit as well. This can be as a result of gastritis, bleeding ulcers, infection or gastrointestinal bleeding. Other causes may include tumours or swallowing blood after a nose bleed.
