Pseudolymphoma or benign lymphoid hyperplasia is an unusual pathologic entity representing lymphoid hyperplasia, which is sometimes not easily classified as reactive or neoplasic. It occurs in a wide variety of sites, including the orbit, salivary glands, skin, thyroid, gastrointestinal tract and lung. Within the gastrointestinal tract, stomach, small intestine and large intestine, particulary rectum, can be involved, but intestine including rectum has been rarely reported in Korea to the best of our knowlege. We experienced a case of focal lymphoid hyperplasia of the rectum presented with hematochezia in a 33-year old male. It was diagnosed by histopathology with sigmoidoscopic biopsy and molecular genetic study. Rectal lesion as well as hematochezia was improved by prednisolone and mesalamine enema therapy. Hence, we report this case with a brief review of literatures. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 17: 702-707, 1997)
