MARULANDA, Hernando; OTERO, William  and  GOMEZ, Martín. Literature Review and Case Report of Post-Inflammatory Polyps and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.1, pp.55-59. ISSN 0120-9957.

Post-inflammatory polyps or “pseudopolyps” may occur in patients who have long-term inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). They occur at sites where severe inflammation had previously occurred. We describe the case of a patient who had suffered from ulcerative colitis for five years when generalized post-inflammatory polyposis was discovered during a follow-upl colonoscopy. We review the meaning of this condition as well as its classification and treatment

Keywords : Pseudopolyps; post inflammatory polyps; ulcerative colitis; inflammation.
