Non-neoplastic and non-hamartomatous colorectal polyps or tumor-like lesions comprise a very heterogeneous group of changes in the colorectal mucosa or the colon wall. Mucosal prolapse-associated lesions and inflammatory polyps, which are predominantly associated with chronic inflammatory bowel disease, are the most prominent examples for polypoid lesions difficult to distinguish from neoplastic lesions such as adenomas, hyperplastic/serrated polyps/adenomas and invasive carcinomas. The considerably less frequent tumor-like lesions like heterotopias, endometriosis, amyloid tumors and pseudolipomatous changes are histologically often well defined and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of colorectal lesions. The etiology, endoscopic and histological appearance of these entities and their most important differential diagnoses are discussed.

The hamartomatous polyps in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome may have malignant potential. To differentiate between hamartomatous and adenomas polyps, vascular characterization can be assessed using noninvasive...
Chromoendoscopy techniques improve the visualization of mucosal structures. This article reviews and summarizes key studies addressing the impact of chromoendoscopy on colonic neoplasia detection and ...
OBJECTIVE. The purposes of this study were to compare staging accuracy of high-resolution sonography (HRUS) with combined low- and high-MHz transducers with that of conventional sonography for gallbla...
Gastrointestinal polyps are commonly encountered during childhood and are one of the most common causes of rectal bleeding in this age group. Most polyps are benign and located in the colon, with the ...
Patients with juvenile polyposis syndrome (JPS), a hereditary autosomal dominant hamartomatous polyposis syndrome, are at increased risk for colorectal adenocarcinoma. The upper gastrointestinal tract...
The recently developed endoscopic Confocal probe microscopy system allows imaging of surface epithelium during ongoing endoscopy (upper and lower) with the potential of immediate diagnosis...
The complete removal of colorectal polyp is required to prevent tumor recurrence and development of potential interval cancers. However, several studies have shown high incomplete resectio...
This is a randomized controlled trial of aspirin and/or folate supplementation for the prevention of the recurrence of neoplastic polyps (adenomas) of the large bowel.
This study aims to investigate the comparative effectiveness between polyp removal with or without electrical current. The investigators want to include 800 polyps in the trial. It is kno...
The aim of these studies is to study the natural history, the symptoms of, as well as the effect of hysteroscopic resection of endometrial polyps. Furthermore, another aim is to study new ...
The growth of INTESTINAL POLYPS. Growth processes include neoplastic (ADENOMA and CARCINOMA) and non-neoplastic (hyperplastic, mucosal, inflammatory, and other polyps).
Discrete tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the COLON. These POLYPS are connected to the wall of the colon either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.
Focal accumulations of EDEMA fluid in the NASAL MUCOSA accompanied by HYPERPLASIA of the associated submucosal connective tissue. Polyps may be NEOPLASMS, foci of INFLAMMATION, degenerative lesions, or malformations.
Discrete abnormal tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the DIGESTIVE TRACT or the RESPIRATORY TRACT. Polyps can be spheroidal, hemispheroidal, or irregular mound-shaped structures attached to the MUCOUS MEMBRANE of the lumen wall either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.
A well-differentiated, benign, hamartomatous proliferation of odontogenic epithelium, probably arising from the rests of Malassez.
