Colonrectal polyps are rare in children. They are an important albeit uncommon cause of rectal bleeding, increase in number of defection with normal consistence of faeces with abundant mucus and sometimes steaks of fresh blood. Colonoscopy promotes both rapid and accurate diagnosis and the opportunity for immediate therapeutic polypectomy. This case concerns a 4 years little female who has complained some episodes of rectal bleeding and mucorrhea for about 3 month without any symptoms.
