OBJECTIVE: To evaluate our incidence of inflammatory fibroid polyps, compare our experience with that of others, and to analyze the possible pathophysiological and aetiological factors. DESIGN: Retrospective review. SETTING: Teaching hospital. MATERIAL: All histopathological slides of the gastrointestinal tract. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incidence and treatment in our Medical Center and elsewhere. RESULTS: We could find only one case of inflammatory fibroid polyp, an estimated incidence of 1/4000. Between 1987-1996 only 331 were reported elsewhere, most of which (293, 88.5%), were located in the stomach. CONCLUSION: Primary mucosal damage can expose the stroma to several irritants (chemical, mechanical and biological), that may subsequently cause inflammatory fibroid polyps in certain people.
