Endoscopic, histological and serologic findings of gastric hyperplastic
polyps after eradication of Helicobacter pylori: comparison between responder and non-responder cases.
The distinction between Brunner gland hyperplastic
nodules/polyps and Brunner gland hamartomas is arbitrary and has been traditionally based mainly on size.
A, B: External view of galls; C, D: General view of syncytium, and hyperplastic
tissue; E, F: Syncytium occupying cells of the xylem; G: Syncytium development in a lateral root of gall; H: Detail of G, showing the syncytium.
Of these 113 removed colon polyps, 71 (62.8%) were adenoma with low-grade intraepithelial neoplasia, 34 (30.1%) were hyperplastic
, two (1.8%) were sessile adenoma, four (3.5%) were adenocarcinoma, and two (1.8%) were leiomyoma (Table 2).
The differential diagnosis of PG includes peripheral giant-cell granuloma, peripheral ossifying fibroma, hemangioma, conventional granulation tissue, and hyperplastic
Patients with familial adenomatous polyposis, Lynch syndrome, or hyperplastic
polyposis syndrome, with imprecise endoscopic descriptions were excluded.
polyps of the appendix are often encountered incidentally, they may also present with acute appendicitis, as in our case.
and Caliskan reported that hyperplastic
pulpitis associated with periapical involvement presented as radiolucencies or radiopacities on radiographic examination.
Microscopic examination showed hyperplastic
and hypertrophied Bartholin's gland revealing mild edema, chronic inflammatory infiltrate, and focal dilation of ducts with squamous metaplasia (figure 2).
In concordance to our observation, very high frequencies (71.3%) of hyperplastic
polypi have also been reported in the recent literature.22 In divergence to our results, a few studies have also reported fundic gland polypi (FGP) to be more prevalent than hyperplastic
The lack of a capsule is more common in nonneoplastic follicular (hyperplastic
, adenomatous) nodules, whereas neoplastic nodules tend to be encapsulated.
The biopsy of polyp was consistent with hyperplastic
polyp with no evidence of gastritis.
