Adenoma-like and non-adenoma-like dysplasia-associated lesion or mass in ulcerative colitis.

Abstract

Ulcerative colitis (UC) patients have an increased risk of colorectal cancer. UC has two general patterns of dysplasia, which are commonly classified as adenoma-like dysplasia-associated lesion or mass (DALM) and non-adenoma-like DALM. The latter has a high risk of concurrent malignancy and often requires a colectomy. Unfortunately, non-adenoma-like DALMs sometimes have endoscopic features similar to those of adenoma-like DALMs. Therefore, new endoscopic techniques to distinguish between these two kinds of DALM have been proposed.
