Abstract

Gastrointestinal system is the second most common site for the occurrence of malakoplakia. We report two cases of pediatric colonic malakoplakia with the endoscopic and characteristic histologic findings. Malakoplakia is rare in pediatric age group, no clinical and endoscopic findings are diagnostic and the condition can masquerade as other conditions like inflammatory bowel disease and tumors.
