Özet

Hairy polyp is an unusual developmental malformation that is most frequently seen as a pedunculated tumor in the neonate. They are benign lesions containing elements of both ectodermal and mesodermal origin. The symptoms of hairy polyps relate both to their location and their size. Larger lesions produce symptoms due to feeding difficulties and airway obstruction while smaller lesions cause intermittent symptoms resulting from a ball-valve type of obstruction.
