Multiple Inflammatory Fibroid Polyps in a Female; A case Report
The inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) usually presents as a solitary benign polyp that arises from the submucosa of the gastrointestinal tract. It occurs more commonly in males and stomach is the favored site followed by ileum, colon and duodenum. Multiple inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFPs) is a rare occurrence, so we thought of presenting a case of a 40 years old female with multiple inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFPs). She presented with abdominal pain and abdominal fullness. Her C.T. abdomen showed multiple lobulated soft tissue masses causing intussusception. Surgical resection was done, and histopathological examination of these polyps showed features of IFPs. A literature review of 9 cases (including ours) between 2000-2022 is also presented. To our knowledge this is the third female patient with multiple IFPs.
