Video Endoscopic Image of a Colonic Lipoma

 Gastrointestinal lipomas are usually smooth globular
 lesions covered by normal mucosa, Lipomas are common
 benign mesenchymal tumors. They may develop in virtually
 all organs throughout the body. Mucosal erosion over the
 lipoma may lead to severe bleeding.

 This image as well as the video clip shows the exact site of
 the biopsy was taken, note the small round yellowish (fat).
 Removal of a portion of overlying mucosa with a biopsy
 forceps revealed the underlying fatty tissue.

Lipomas must be differentiated from other masses or tumors.

Colonic Lipoma with a small hyperplastic polyp. Yellow mass was seen in the transverse colon. Lipomas are probably the commonest submucosal polyps occurring in the large bowel.

 Yellow mass was seen in the transverse colon. Lipomas are
 probably the commonest submucosal polyps occurring in
 the large bowel.

They occur most commonly in the ileum, and they may be  single or multiple. Duodenal lipomas are mostly small but may become pedunculated with obstruction of the lumen.

Lipomas are soft, and typically exhibit a pillow sign where a dimple is left after compression wit the tip of the biopsy forceps.

 " The Pillow Sign"

 Lipomas are soft, and typically exhibit a "pillow sign"
 where a dimple is left after compression wit the tip of the
 biopsy forceps.

 Lipoma. Fatty tumors can be indented with a biopsy
 forceps, resulting in a cushion or pillow sign.
