AIMS The 'metaplastic' polyp of the colorectum, a synonym for the hyperplastic polyp, was named based only on features of the crypt epithelium. It is considered non-neoplastic, but the precise cellular differentiation status remains to be proven. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty-eight hyperplastic polyps, 12 serrated adenomas, 45 tubular adenomas and five juvenile polyps were studied for their phenotypic expression using gastric (foveolar or pyloric gland cell), small intestinal (goblet cell), and… CONTINUE READING
