    Benign lesions of the colon are infrequent and with a low percentage of appearance. Colon lipomas are in the third place of benign tumors after adenomas and smooth muscle [1,5]. Colonic lipomas are benign non epithelial tumors of soft texture and mesenchymal origin; generally they grow from mature adipocytes.

    Lipomas can appear in the entire gastrointestinal tract. They are generally asymptomatic, but when symptomatically, bleeding and obstruction can appear [2,4]. Its clinical diagnosis is difficult, signs and symptoms include abdominal pain, obstruction, lower gastrointestinal bleeding, diarrhea, constipation, and intussusception [5]. These tumors are found in endoscopies, radiological exams, surgical interventions, and autopsies. We present 2 cases of colon lipoma.
