Association between acrochordons and colonic polyps.


Fifty-four male and female patients with suspected colonic disease were examined for the presence of acrochordons prior to colonoscopy. Thirty-five of these patients (65%) had skin tags and twenty-six (48%) were found to have colonic polyps. In this study patients with acrochordons were significantly (p less than 0.005) more likely to have adenomatous polyps; thus, skin tags may be good markers for the presence of polyps in patients with suspected colonic disease. However, any association between colonic polyps and acrochordons in the general population requires further examination.
