Abstract
Most solitary gastrointestinal (GI) polyps in children are either inflammatory or hamartomatous. Solitary hyperplastic polyp, sentinel polyp and solitary adenomatous polyp have been occasionally diagnosed in adults, but very rarely reported in Korean children. We recently came across a case with adenomatous polyp in the colon, a case with hyperplastic polyp beneath the gastroesophageal junction, a case with hyperplastic polyp in the prepyloric area, and a case with sentinel polyp in the distal esophagus, which are unusual pathologic types in children. These mucosal lesions were diagnosed incidentally during elective endoscopic examinations for GI symptoms. Most polyps do not cause significant symptoms, so the diagnosis might be delayed, especially in children, in whom GI endoscopy is not commonly performed for screening purpose as in the adults.
