Metaplasia ossea in un polipo adenomatoso intestinale. Descrizione di un caso e revisione della letteratura.

Translated title of the contribution: Bone metaplasia in adenomatous intestinal polyp. Report of a case and review of the literature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


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.
