The authors report the case of a 75-year-old woman with significant gastrointestinal bleeding caused by a large hyperplastic polyp and a smaller inflammatory fibroid polyp. Both polyps were removed endoscopically successfully. The authors give an overview of the endoscopic picture of the different kinds of stomach polyps with their histologic patterns, etiology, relation to Helicobacter pylori infection, malignant potential and therapeutic options based on the available literature.
