Colonic Lipoma

Colonic lipomas arise from deposits of adipose tissue in the bowel wall and have no malignant potential. Most are located in the submucosal layer, but some also lie subserosally. Most lipomas are asymptomatic. They rarely cause obstruction, but
when they do it is usually caused by intussusception, with the lipoma forming the lead point. Often these lesions are found as an incidental mass at laparotomy, and a partial colectomy is
needed to confirm the diagnosis.

In this study, we present a case, with rectal heamoragie and chronic constipation; confirmed as left colonic leiomyoma in colonoscopy and CT; and after the operation it is confirmed as
colonic lipoma.
