Abstract

We report a case of metaplastic ossification occurring within a tubulovillous adenoma of the large bowel. To our knowledge, only two cases of this process have been previously described. The pathogenesis is unclear, but the phenomenon seems to be a morphologic curiosity with no clinical significance.
