Esophageal inflammatory fibroid polyp. Endoscopic and radiologic features.


:We present the case of a 60-year-old male patient, who had several episodes of melena during the last years. One month ago he had a new episode of digestive bleeding, and an endoscopic study was performed that showed at 35 cm from the dental arcade a polypoid, pedunculated lesion, with a diameter of 5 cm and a submucosal aspect, a few erosions on its surface and a fibrin deposit. Its head reached the cardia, and it bled when touched by the endoscope. The biopsies taken were negative. X-ray and CT studies confirmed the existence of a mass compatible with a submucosal lesion. The patient was operated and the tumor was excised. The histologic study showed an inflammatory fibroid polyp, an entity very rarely described at the level of the stomach, duodenum, small intestine, and colon and exceptionally described at the esophageal level.
