A rare case and cause of bleeding PR with prolapse in a 11-year-old boy [Figure 1]. Colonoscopy showed rectum to be studded with multiple polyps with normal intervening mucosa. Resection with endorectal pull-through was done and is symptom-free after 2 years. Histopathological examination (HPE) was reported as inflammatory cap polyposis [Figure 2]. Inflammatory cap polyposis is a rare nonmalignant condition with poorly understood pathogenesis.[1]
