Abstract

Hyperplastic polyps are not thought to carry a malignant potential. They are, therefore, not regularly screened by the majority of clinicians. We present two case reports of serrated adenomas that add to a small but expanding body of clinical and histological evidence that suggests a hyperplastic to neoplastic pathway. Regular colonoscopic surveillance may be indicated in at least some cases of hyperplastic polyposis.
