Four mystery polyps !
Just a bit of fun! Above are four types of benign polyps which can be found in the stomach, duodenum and colon respectively. I've used a 'plugin' which will hopefully make it easier to see the polyps on a small screen.
BUT WHAT ARE THESE FOUR POLYPS ?
You'll have to make up your mind and then click 'Explanation' below to reveal the correct answers !
The 3 polyps in column A are all adenomatous polyps. Flat and plaque-like in the stomach, pale in the duodenum and a sessile TVA in the colon.
Column B shows NET's with the prominent vessels along it's side in the stomach and colon whilst the duodenal NET has the typical central depression.
Column C shows 'hamartomatous' polyps seen in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. There is hardly ever any dysplasia within these polyp and it's uncertain what the 'precursor lesion' is for these patients GI cancers
Column D show inflammatory polyps which are typically angry red and sometimes with pretty white spots !
