Endoscopic polypectomy alone dramatically reduced bowel frequency and colonic blood-loss in seven patients who had multiple schistosomal polyps which had persisted despite previous medical treatment. The disappearance of hypoproteinaemic leg oedema in five patients was associated with a corresponding rise in serum albumin. Up to 100 polypectomies could be performed during a single endoscopic examination. Multiple endoscopic polypectomy quickly improved the well-being of debilitated patients with schistosomal polyposis.
