Description

Inflammatory polyps are usually associated with inflammatory bowel disease. The majority of these lesions are asymptomatic, however, they may be a source of obstruction or hemorrhage. These polyps represent re-epithelialization of the damaged colonic mucosa. Although inflammatory polyps have been associated with the acute phase of ischemic colitis, there has been only one report of delayed presentation of a symptomatic inflammatory polyp following ischemic injury to the colon. We present the second such report and a review of the literature.
