Abstract

Four cases of gastrointestinal lipoma that were demonstrated by computed tomography (CT) are presented. Until now, definitive diagnosis of gastrointestinal lipomas has required fiberoptic endoscopy, biopsy, or surgical excision. The results of this study indicate that CT may become a definitive diagnostic examination for lipomas of the gastrointestinal tract.
