Colorectal polyp designates any well circumscribed sessile or pedicled formation, of variable size, ranging from a few millimeters to a few centimeters, protruding into the lumen of the colon or rectum without prejudging its histological nature. A three-year-old female child presented with a small, fleshy, necrotic, slightly bleeding mass through the anus. A ligation was performed before polypectomy. Post-operative sigmoidoscopy was unremarkable. Polyp in children can be complicated by a prolapse through the anus. Excisional biopsy allows a precise histological diagnosis from which the appropriate course of therapy and follow-up can be determined.
