Abstract
A 56-year-old man and a 70-year-old woman, with histories of left colectomy and appendectomy respectively, were admitted to our hospital. In both case s, colonoscopy showed a pedunculated colonic polyp in the ascending colon, and a silk suture became visible in the stalk during polypectomy. The histo logical diagnosis was adenoma. These two cases constitute the first report of colonic adenomatous polyps accompanied by suture migration.
