Lymphoid polyposis is a lymphoid hyperplasia of the gastrointestinal tract that usually presents as multiple small polyps in the colon during childhood. This should be differentiated from other neoplastic or familial polyposis of the intestine. Pseudomembranous colitis (PMC) is commonly associated with Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) but can be a consequence of other disease processes. We report a case of benign lymphoid polyposis of the colon with pseudomembranous colitis in a 4-month child.
