Abstract To evaluate and classify polyps from colon in Thai patients, the authors retrospectively analyzed the 776 polyps from 696 subjects in King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital during the past five-year period from 1999 to 2003. All colonic polyps were included in the study. There were 461 (59\%) male and 315 (410\%) female with the mean age of 51 years. Non-neoplastic and neoplastic polyps were documented 50\% each. Hyperplastic polyp was the most frequent diagnosis (39\%), followed by tubular adenoma (36\%). According to neoplastic polyp, 8\%, 3\%, and 14\% cases were identified as high-grade dysplastic change, intramucosal carcinoma, and invasive carcinoma, respectively.
