Inflammatory fibroid polyps are uncommon but well documented solitary polypoid lesions occurring in gastrointestinal tract ; most commonly in stomach followed by ileum and rarely in colon ,duodenum and oesophagus. Polyps in ileum most commonly present with acute intestinal obstruction as aresult of intussusception. The lesions are characterized by variable proliferation of fibroblasts and small vessels which may involve the whole thickness of the bowel wall. Mast cells and Eosinophils are also seen in the polyp.
