Inflammatory fibroid polyp of the gastrointestinal tract is a rare, benign neoplasm, most frequently located in the gastric antrum. Symptoms depend on the location and the size of the lesion. Biopsies are limited for the diagnosis of inflammatory fibroid polyps and diagnosis may not be possible until resection. The authors present a case of a 55-year-old woman, presenting with an upper gastrointestinal bleeding due to a large gastric inflammatory fibroid polyp imitating a gastrointestinal stromal tumor.

Inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFPs) are rare non-neoplastic and proliferating submucosal lesions of the gastrointestinal tract. The classic IFP, which was first described by Vanek, consists of prominent blood vessels and is characterized by a heavy inflammatory infiltrate, which is rich in eosinophilic granulocytes. The clinical presentation depends on the size and location. Inflammatory fibroid polyps cannot be differentiated from malignancy without histological examination. We report a case of IFP in the stomach that mimicked a primary gastric malignancy showing an increased F-FDG uptake...

The vast majority of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) occur as sporadic tumors. Rarely, however, these neoplasms can arise in syndromic contexts. Under these circumstances, GISTs are often multiple and associated with accompanying signs peculiar of the hosting syndrome. Moreover, syndromic GISTs themselves tend to show heterogeneous features depending on the underlying condition. Multiple inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFPs) and a jejunal spindle-cell GIST were resected in a germline PDGFRA-mutant individual...

OBJECTIVE: To study the clinicopathologic features, pathogenesis, and differential diagnosis of inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) of the gastrointestinal tract. METHODS: The clinical and pathologic findings of 37 IFPs in the gastrointestinal tract were retrospectively analyzed. Immunohistochemical study and KIT, PDGFRA molecular analysis were carried out and the literatures reviewed. RESULTS: There were 9 males and 28 females. The median age was 57 (range 37 to 78) years...

The entity known as "juvenile-like (inflammatory/hyperplastic) mucosal polyps of the gastrointestinal tract in neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1)" was recently proposed, but is not well known. Here, we describe the characteristics of this entity in a surgically resected case. The hemorrhagic 2 × 1 cm-sized polyp was resected from the ascending colon of a 55-year-old male NF1 patient. The polyp was composed of characteristic multiple mucosal protrusions and submucosal elements that included vasculopathic changes...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory fibroid polyp (lFP) is a rare, benign, and solitary neoplasm predominantly located in the gastric antrum and small bowel. Its clinical symptoms are heterogeneous and essentially depend on the location and size of the tumor. Definitive diagnosis is made through histopathology and this pathology has excellent long-term prognosis. AIM: To identify the cases of IFP seen at the Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubirán over a 10-year period...

BACKGROUND: Menorrhagia, by definition, is heavy cyclical blood loss in excess of 80 ml/month of menstrual period lasting longer than 7 days. There are many possible causes of heavy menstrual bleeding which include hormonal imbalance, fibroids, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, nonhormonal intrauterine device, adenomyosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and rarely uterine, ovarian, or cervical cancer. Treatment depends on the causes of the menorrhagia. Hysterectomy is one of the several surgical procedures as definitive treatment...

A middle-aged woman presented in shock with bleeding per rectum for 2 days without any significant past medical or surgical illness. Abdominal sonography, oesophagogastroduodenoscopy and sigmoidocolonoscopy were unremarkable. Despite 6 units of blood transfusion, 3000 mL of plasma expanders and ionotropes, the arterial pressure gradually decreased. We had no choice but to undergo life-threatening yet possibly life saving laparotomy. We found a 1×1 cm ileal bleeding mucosal polyp about 20 cm away from the ileocaecal junction...

INTRODUCTION: Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP), also known as Vanek's tumor, is a rare polypoid lesion of the gastrointestinal tract. A recently observed case led us to review the literature, with the aim to discuss the management of asymptomatic gastric IFPs. CASE REPORT: A 71-year-old man was endoscopically diagnosed as having a polypoid lesion located in the gastric antrum. Histopathological and himmunoistochemical studies of endoscopic biopsies revealed an IFP...

AIM: To study that inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFPs) in children are extremely uncommon tumors that may occur throughout the gastrointestinal tract. METHODS: A systematic review of the pediatric literature and a report of a new case of IFP is also presented. The PubMed database was searched for original studies on pediatric IFPs since 1960, according to "Preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses" guidelines for systematic reviews. RESULTS: Five studies were finally enclosed, encompassing 6 children with IFPs (mean age 64 mo)...

Inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFPs) are rare entities. They commonly occur in the stomach, and a fraction of them are present in the small intestines. The exact aetiopathogenesis for IFPs remains unknown. Most small bowel IFPs are asymptomatic and usually go undetected until they produce symptoms. IFPs are responsible for roughly 2% of all small bowel obstructions. They act as a lead point for intussusception, by telescoping into the distal bowel loops. Nearly 85 such cases have been reported in the literature...

AIM: We evaluated the aetiological factors, diagnoses and treatment outcomes of adult cases of invagination of the intestine, or intussusception. We elucidated the role of ultrasonography (USG), computed tomography (CT) and other techniques in the diagnosis of such cases. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Six patients with sufficient medical data, all of whom were followed-up and treated for intussusception at Safa Hospital, General Surgery Clinic, Istanbul, Turkey, between July 2008 and December 2013, were enrolled...
