The case of an inflammatory fibroid polyp of infrequent localization is presented. Altogether 100 cases are reported by summarizing publications in the literature and only a small part of them showed duodenal localization. The patient whose case is presented was subjected to internal examination and later to operation because of acute spastic abdominal pain and loss of weight. Following the description of the case the authors analyse the etiology of this rare disease and the problems of terminology. Radical, curative operation is considered expedient in these cases. The presented case can be regarded as a special one both from the viewpoint of diagnostics and of its duodenal localization.
