Inflammatory fibroid polyp of the ileum. Case report

Acta Chir Scand. 1988 Apr;154(4):325-7.


In a 55-year-old woman with intestinal obstruction and intussusception, an excised segment of distal ileum was shown by light and electron microscopy and immunohistologically to contain an inflammatory fibroid polyp. This rare, usually solid lesion of the gastrointestinal canal should be included in differential diagnosis of small-bowel obstruction and intussusception.
