The Teaching Point

Angiolipomas are benign lesions that are rarely found in the gastrointestinal tract. It is important to learn how to differentiate them from more aggressive lesions such as neoplasms. They can be diagnosed by colonoscopy, computed tomography and confirmed by inmunohistoquemical tests.

Abstract
Angiolipomas are benign lesions that are frequently found in subcutaneous cellular tissue, but are rarely located in the gastrointestinal tract. Here we discuss a case of colonic angiolipoma that presented as a mass near the hepatic flexure, occupying approximately 90% of the colonic lumen. The diagnosis was made by endoscopy and computed tomography. The mass was resected successfully and diagnosis was confirmed by histological studies and immunohistochemical tests.
