Two cases of symptomatic inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFP) of the small intestine are presented, and the 17 adequately described symptomatic IFP previously reported are reviewed. IFP of the small bowel are rare. Most patients present with intestinal obstruction and a few with chronic anemia. IFP have characteristic histologic features and are easily recognized if they are considered in differential diagnosis.
