Rectal Cancer and Chicken Skin Mucosa

Slight Mucosal Changes are frequently seen adjacent to a colorectal cancer or adenoma. First described by Shatz BA et al, they are called Chicken Skin Mucosa (CMS), and are supposed to occur as a result of fat accumulation in macrophages in the lamina propria adjacent to colonic neoplasms. In a series of 852 consecutive colonoscopies CMS was found adjacent to eight of 10 distal colorectal cancers, one of four of proximal colon cancers and 16 of 42 distal adenomas.
