Abstract

A 25-year-old renal transplant recipient receiving anticoagulant therapy for renal vein thrombosis, presented with massive lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Superior mesenteric angiogram revealed active bleeding in the cecum. Colonoscopy revealed a sessile ulcerated polyp in the cecum with satellite polyps. The polyps were fulgurated with Nd:YAG laser. Colonoscopy later revealed a remmant of the polyp, which was excised. The histopathology revealed a lymphoid polyp.
