We describe the case of a 50 year-old male who presented for a routine screening colonoscopy and was found to have a sessile rectal polyp. Microscopic evaluation showed rectal mucosa with gastric heterotopia composed of oxyntic glands lined by chief and parietal cells. Gastric heterotopia may be a rare cause of rectal bleeding, pain, or ulcers.
