Abstract

Malakoplakia is a rare, granulomatous, inflammatory disease. The clinical presentation and radiological appearance of the malakoplakia mimics a malignant tumor. In this article we describe a case of the malakoplakia of the mesocolon with invasion into the serosa of the stomach. The frozen section report considered the lesion to be a malignancy. The definitive diagnosis depended on microscopic detection of Michaelis-Gutmann bodies by electronic microscope. We review the current literature about the malakoplakia of gastrointestinal tract, and focus on the pathogenesis, clinical manifestation, diagnosis and treatment.
