Russell body gastroenteritis has been reported as a reactive inflammatory process in most cases and many of the reports were from the upper gastrointestinal tract, especially the stomach, which may be associated with Helicobacter pylori infection and rarely associated with gastric carcinoma. Russell body containing Mott cells have been rarely seen in Barrett’s esophagus and duodenum, and only 2 cases have been reported in colon, including a transplant patient with diarrhea and a rectal tubulovillous adenoma. In this article, we report another localized form of Russell body containing Mott cells in colon as an inflammatory polyp without adenomatous change.
