Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a solitary intestinal lesion of unknown etiology. Although IFF is benign, laparotomy for the resection of colonic IFP is performed in most cases because the polyp is usually large. We report a successful endoscopic resection of cecal IFP. It is considered that colonic IFP should be resected endoscopically if the polyp is small and is located submucosally.
