A Rare Combination of Gastric Inflammatory Fibroid Polyp and Hiatal Hernia
Abstract: Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a rare solitary gastrointestinal lesion of unknown etiology. It generally presents as polypoid mass in the gastric antrum. Mostly affects adults at average age of 60 years. IFP can cause different symptoms such as abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, intestinal obstruction or intussusception. IFP is a bening lesion and it may rarely mimic the submucosal tumor. The diagnosis can be possible after removal of the detected lession either by laparoscopic or open approach. In the present paper, we report a patient with gastric IFP and hiatal hernia. IFP was excised throughout the gastrotomy and following hiatal hernia was repaired. According to our best knowledge, this may be the first case report of gastric IFP concomitance with a hiatal hernia.
