Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a rare benign lesion, originating from the submucosa in the gastrointestinal tract. It generally appears as an isolated benign lesion, rarely located at the level of the ileum. Its origin is controversial. Clinical presentation varies depending on its location; invagination and obstruction are the most common indicative symptoms when the polyp is located at the level of the small intestine. We report the case of a 22-year old patient with abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting and a personal history of intermittent constipation and a weight loss during the previous year...

Intussusception occurs mainly in children but rarely in adults. About 80-90% of adult cases of intussusception are due to benign or malignant neoplasms as a lead point. One of the causes is an inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP), a rare, benign entity that occurs more frequently in the stomach than the ileum. We describe an uncommon case of a patient who presented with intussusception-induced IFP of the ileum. A 35-year-old woman presented with a 2-day history of abdominal pain. A computed tomography scan demonstrated ileocolic intussusception...

Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a rare benign lesion of the gastrointestinal tract. We report a case of computed tomography (CT) imaging finding of a gastric IFP with massive fibrosis. CT scans showed thickening of submucosal layer with overlying mucosal hyperenhancement in the gastric antrum. The submucosal layer showed increased enhancement on delayed phase imaging. An antrectomy with gastroduodenostomy was performed because gastric cancer was suspected, particularly signet ring cell carcinoma. The histopathological diagnosis was an IFP with massive fibrosis...

Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is an uncommon benign tumor of the gastrointestinal tract. IFP in the esophagus is very rare, in particular in giant size. A case of a 63 year old woman with a 13 × 7 × 4.5 cm polyp originated of the lower third of the oesophagus is presented. Her esophageal polyp extended proximally from the level of the tracheal bifurcation, prolapsing through the cardia as well as the herniated stomach, and entered distally into the abdominal part of the stomach. Resection of the polyp was performed via a right oesophago-gastrotomy...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a very rare benign condition in children that can occur throughout the gastrointestinal tract. It is characterized as a polypoid lesion originating in the submucosa, composed of connective tissue and eosinophilic infiltrate. It is most common in the stomach and in adults between the fifth and seventh decades of life. Its occurrence is unusual in the duodenum. CASE SUMMARY: One case of duodenal IFP was described and the literature is reviewed with emphasis on the clinical and pathological features of IFP in children...

Inflammatory fibroid polyps (Vanek's tumor) are rare, accounting for 0.1% of all gastric polyps. This letter describes an unusual case of an intermittent gastric outlet obstruction by a large Vanek's tumor.

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory fibroid polyps are very unusual gastrointestinal tumours. Furthermore, their occurrence in the rectum is a rarity indeed. OBJECTIVE: To document this very rare pathologic entity in a patient from our region of Africa and highlight some pertinent clinical and pathologic aspects of the disease. CASE REPORT: We present a 59 year old Nigerian who had neither significant previous medical history nor current complaint and had a routine colonoscopy done...

In this article we present the case and images of an infrequent submucosal gastric tumor: an inflammatory fibroid polyp or Vanek´s tumor. When the tumor size exceeds the centimeter, it may be difficult to differentiate from malignant lesions. Endoscopic removal may be feasible and curative.

Background. Inflammatory Fibroid Polyp (IFP) of the colon is an exceedingly rare condition. Since 1952 till now only 32 cases have been reported worldwide of which only 5 were giant (>4 cm) polyps mostly found in the caecum (15 cases) with only 3 in the descending colon. Case Presentation. A 36-year-old female with no previous illness presented to the emergency unit with an acute onset pain over the right hypochondrium for 3 days associated with intermittent fever and anorexia. As she had evidence of localized peritonitis she underwent a diagnostic laparoscopy and subsequently an exploratory laparotomy...

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...
