Pseudo polyps are very common in the course of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Patients with long history
of inflammatory bowel disease are known to be at higher risk of malignancy. Giant colonic psedopolyps are
sometimes mistaken for carcinoma which may potentially lead to unnecessary surgery. We describe a case of a 62-
year-old man with a large localized inflammatory lesion of the sigmoid colon. The clinical presentation of this rare
tumor-like lesion, which can be considered as a localized giant pseudo polyp of the colon, mimicked malignancy or
polypoid cavernous hemangioma. What is also unique in this case, is that no definite past history of inflammatory
bowel disease could be demonstrated.
