Lipomas of the gastrointestinal tract are rare, and most of them are frequently seen in the colon. This tumor is classified into subtypes by the proportion of the inner mesenchymal components. Fibrolipoma, as a variant type of lipoma, is rich in the fibrous component. It is generally detected incidentally, but sometimes symptoms such as bleeding, abdominal pain or anemia can be observed according to the size, shape and location of the tumor. It can be resected surgically or endoscopically, and then it can be confirmed by the pathologic diagnosis. Recurrence can occur, so follow-up evaluation is needed. We report here on a case of a fibrolipoma of the colon, and the tumor was endoscopically resected. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2008;37:142-145)
