A 48-year-old man was addressed for endoscopic evaluation of chronic pain of the left lower quadrant. Gastroscopy was unrevealing. However, colonoscopy disclosed a villous-like pedunculated polyp of the sigmoid colon, 2.5cm in diameter, with fresh blood distally to it. Due to its size and to the high risk of bleeding, we decided to remove it by means of the endoloop technique.
