Successful treatment of cap polyposis by avoidance of intraluminal trauma: clues to pathogenesis

Abstract

“Cap polyposis” is a rarely-encountered condition in which distinctive inflammatory polyps are located from the rectum to the distal descending colon. Microscopically, the polyps consist of elongated, tortuous, and distended crypts covered by a “cap” of inflammatory granulation tissue.
