  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A patient reported here was a 69-year-old man who had a large villous tumor(measuring 45 mm)in the cecum.

 Villous tumor of the colon, in general, develops diffusely in the rectum or in the sigmoid colon, is short in height with no stalk.This patient, however, had large and oval villous tumor with an unequivocal stalk in the cecum.

 He underwent barium enema and colonoscopic examination twice as work up.These three occasions of examination resulted in discrepant diagnoses.We concluded that inadequate washing at the first colonoscopic examination led to the failure to reveal the lesion because of the mucus covering it.
