  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 66-year-old man who had previously undergone endoscopic removal of rectal carcinoid was admitted because of polypoid lesion of the ileocecal valve on follow-up colonoscopy. Radiographic examinations revealed multiple polypoid masses on the ileocecal valve, and endoscopic examinations revealed multiple reddish polypoid lesions. A polypoid mass was resected endoscopically and was investigated histologically. Pathologic examinations showed that a polypoid mass consisted of benign proliferation of lymph follicle. The patient was diagnosed as having benign lymphoid polyps localized in the ileocecal valve. In this case, epithelial neoplasm should be included in the differential diagnosis. Endoscopic resection was useful to diagnose this condition.
