Lipomas are one of the most common benign nonepithelial tumors of the colon and which are often detected incidentally at radiologic investigation or on operation without specific symptoms, Most of them look like submucosal tumor with yellowish-white color, smooth surface and solitary lesion. Sometimes they produce symptoms with large size, bleeding, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, indigestion, intestinal obstruction and intussusception. Diagnosis can be made by colonoscopy, abdominal CT, MRI, barium enema and histologic confirmation achieves by the endoscopic polypectomy. Endoscopic polypectomy or mucosectomy can make it easy to remove them, as therapeutic method. We report 2 cases of lipomas successfully removed by endoseopic polypectomy-the one with two lipomas each at right descending colon and ileocecal valve and the other with one lipoma at the ileocecal valve-with the relevant literatures.
