Lymphoid Polyposis

Multiple benign lymphoid polyposis of the large bowel has been reported. Most cases occur in children. Histologically similar to solitary lymphoid polyps of the rectum, lymphoid polyposis consists of prominent active lymphoid nodules in the mucosa and submucosa [17]. Lesions are entirely benign and in some cases have been reported to disappear spontaneously. In patients with family histories of polyps, it is essential to determine the exact histologic nature of the lesions so that unnecessary surgery is not performed. Benign lymphoid polyposis of the terminal ileum has been reported in patients with Gardner's syndrome and FAP [18].
