The article presents a case study of a 59-year-old Asian lady who was referred with history of iron deficiency anemia. A previous upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with duodenal biopsies was normal. The patient was otherwise asymptomatic apart from weight loss of half a stone in the few months prior to referral. A colonoscopy was performed. The article presents the endoscopic views of the cecum.

Multiple lipomas may be seen in 10% of cases but lipomatosis has been rarely reported. A case of segmental...
