Inflammatory fibroid polyp of the gastrointestinal tract is an unusual lesion of apparent submucosal origin but of unknown etiology. The stomach is most commonly involved with typical presentation being a rounded or oval polyp in the gastric antrum. Occurrence in the duodenum is distinctly rare since only three previous cases have been reported. We present a patient with an unusually long inflammatory fibroid polyp arising in the third portion of the duodenum.
