Inflammatory Fibroid Polyp of the Small Intestine: An Extremely Rare Cause of Intussusception

Abstract: Introduction: Inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFP) are rare, benign lesions of the gastrointestinal tract. Recent molecular studies of IFPs identified platelet - derived growth factor receptor ? (PDGFRA) - activating mutations, suggesting possible neoplastic qualities to IFPs. IFPs originate from the submucosa and often extend into the overlying mucosa. Although certain IFPs infiltrate the muscularis propria focally, disruption of the muscularis propria and penetration into the subserosa is extremely rare. Methods: The current report presents an unusual case of an ileal IFP. A 48 - year - old female visited the Department of Surgery, SGT Hospital due to abdominal pain. Radiological study demonstrated an ileocecal - type intussusception due to a luminal polypoid mass of the ileum. Results: Excised specimen sent for a histopathology had a histologic diagnosis of inflammatory fibroid polyp. After six months of follow - up, the patient is in good health and no evident recurrence of the tumor has been detected.
