ABSTRACT
The article presents a study conducted to evaluate the diagnostic utility of the histological characteristics ascribed in the literature to serrated adenomas, and to develop a practical working model to allow its reliable identification. The article also documents the frequency and location of serrated adenomas identified in an unselected series of individuals undergoing colonoscopic evaluation, as well as the clinical characteristics of those individuals. 140 consecutive individuals with 255 polyps were identified from 919 individuals undergoing colonoscopy.

    Colonoscopic polypectomy is the usual treatment for an adenomatous colorectal polyp. We report a case of a sessile tubulovilious adenoma in the rectosigmoid colon disappearing during a course of radiation therapy for an unrelated cervical cancer. This case report illustrates that at least some...
