Malakoplakia in the colon has been described either as part of a systemic disease with a diffuse presentation or as a rare incidental finding associated usually with an adenocarcinoma. To our knowledge, the association of malakoplakia with colonic adenoma is very rare and only 5 cases, including the present case, have been reported so far. Here, we describe a case of malakoplakia coexisting with multiple sigmoid colonic adenomas in a 67-year-old patient without any underlying inflammatory or infectious disease and with no history of immunosuppressive treatment. As far as we are concerned, this is the first description of malakoplakia associated with multiple colonic adenomas.
