Umar Hayat  | Mohammad Ali Al-Mahdawi | Syed Haris Tasleem | Nisar Ahmed 
Abstract: The Objective is to report a rare case of 51-yrs old female who presents with us for a routine colon cancer screening with the standard method i-e colonoscopy. She is completely asymptomatic and the physical examination also turned to be non-significant. Of interest, her colonoscopy showed a pedunculated mass attached with the walls of proximal Transverse colon. The mass was removed and sent for the histopathology which manifests benign inflammatory changes with fibroblastic elements so the term used for mass was Inflammatory Fibroid Polyp (IFP). IFPs are common mainly in patients over 50 yrs of age and found mainly in ascending or descending parts of large bowel. Our patient is of utmost interest since only 32 cases of IFPs located in transverse colon have been reported to date.
