Abstract


Small-bowel tumors, both benign and malignant, are rare lesions that clinicians often do not encounter, accounting for less than 2% of gastrointestinal malignancies. Usually, benign small-bowel tumors, including polyps, are asymptomatic. The diagnosis of small-bowel tumors is difficult because of an often-delayed presentation and nonspecific signs and symptoms. We report an incidentally detected case of a long, pedunculated, large polyp of the terminal ileum, which protruded through the ileocecal valve into the cecum that was removed by colonoscopy in a 41-year-old male with intermittent right-sided lower-abdominal pain. The polyp was resected through snare polypectomy without complications. The histopathology of the resected polyp was confirmed as an ileal hyperplastic polyp. Two years later, there was no recurrence observed via postpolypectomy surveillance colonoscopy.
