Case Report

Serrated Lesions in patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

400-402

David Viso Vidal, Mónica Sierra Ausín, Patricia Suárez Álvarez, Francisco Jorquera Plaza,

Background: a new serrated histologic finding has recently been discovered in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), known as serrated epithelial change (SEC). Recent studies suggest that SEC is strongly associated with dysplasia. Case report: the case was a 62-year-old male in a dysplasia-colorectal cancer screening program with periodic chromoendoscopies, with CES findings in the previous chromoendoscopy studies. Discussion: a prophylactic colectomy seems a reasonable option for patients with several serrated lesions identified via chromoendoscopy screening. Particularly, if they are extensive and poorly defined, due to the possibility of developing high-grade dysplasia or colorectal cancer (CRC) during surveillance.
