From June 1989, to June 1991, 58 patients with GI polyps were reviewed. Except two patients who had multiple polyps, 56 had only one polyp. The size of polyps were 0.5 to 3 em in diameter. 51 (75%) of polyps were located in the rectosigmoid region, 25 (37%) were in the rectum and 26 (38%) in the sigmoid. (Seventeen) (25%) polyps (two in right colon, four in transverse, and 11 in descending colon) were located in other regions. Patients were between nine months to 70 years old. 14 polyps were reported to be inflammatory, and 17 adenomatous. Polypectomy was done for all patients, and no massive bleeding, bacterial infection, or perforation were observed. Only five patients had slight bleeding which was treated by conservative measures.
