Aim: We report our experience with Inflammatory Polyps of the Colon. Methods: Retrospective study including all polyps diagnosed at the Arias Stella Pathology Institute, Lima in the year 2008. Inflammatory polyps were diagnosed as polyp composed of reactive epithelium without dysplasia, inflamed granulation tissue. Results: We found 887 polyps of which 2.3% were inflammatory polyps. One out of three were located in the sigmoid colon, and 63% had no underlying colonic disease. Conclusion: Inflammatory polyps are rare among colonic polyps and most patients have no accompanying colonic disease.
