Introduction: Several studies have found associations between different colorectal polyp subtypes and colorectal cancer. The identification of colorectal polyps can reduce CRC mortality through earlier diagnosis of cancers and the removal of polyps which are the precursor lesion of CRC.

Aim To study the clinicopathologic characteristics of colorectal polyps in patients from South Egypt Cancer Institute, Assiut University, Egypt.

Material and Methods: A total of 74 colorectal polyps were obtained from the Department of Pathology Archives of South Egypt Cancer Institute, Assiut University. Data regarding age, gender, size, histologic types of polyps, site, and degree of dysplasia were retrieved and analyzed using SPSS version 20.

Results: The average age was 31.6 years. The majority of cases were non-adenomatous polyps (70.6%), while adenomatous polyps represent 21 cases (29.4%). Colorectal polyps were slightly common in males (56.8%) than in females (43.2%). The rectum was the most common site for polyp development. Most of the colorectal polyps were of medium size (1-2 cm), and tubulovillous adenoma was the most frequent type among adenomatous polyps.

Conclusion:  Our study revealed similar type and distribution of colorectal polyps as that in previous studies with minor differences.
