Abstract

Malakoplakia is an uncommon inflammatory condition usually affecting the genitourinary tract, which has been associated with infections, tumors, and immunocompromised states. We report a case of malakoplakia in the colon of a 5-year-old girl with a history of bloody diarrhea. Clinically and macroscopically malakoplakia can simulate tumors or abscesses and can cause diagnostic difficulties.
