Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIM:

An angiolipoma is a common benign neoplasm with a characteristic vascular component that occurs in the subcutaneous tissue and rarely in the gastrointestinal tract. We report on a 69-year-old man with a submucosal angiolipoma in the cecum.

METHODS:

This patient was treated with a laparoscopy-assisted ileocecostomy, and a side-to-side anastomosis was performed extracorporeally.

RESULTS:

A light microscopic study supported the diagnosis of an angiolipoma of the colon. After 5 years of follow-up, the patient has no symptoms or signs of recurrence.

CONCLUSION:

The colonic angiolipoma was successfully removed using a minimally invasive laparoscopic technique.
