Introduction and importance: Inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFPs) are rare, benign tumors that can arise throughout the gastrointestinal tract, they are usually asymptomatic, and clinical presentation depends on the site of involvement. Gastric and colon IFPs are traditionally identified incidentally, whereas small intestinal lesions are often encountered in the setting of intussusception or during imaging studies. Complete resection via endoscopy or surgery is recommended. Case presentation: Patient is a 52-year-old male without past medical history; he had a five-month history of mild colicky abdominal pain. A mass was detected in the small bowel, and surgery was decided. Since the mass was small a cooperative approach with an intraoperative enteroscopy was needed to locate the mass and achieve complete resection. Discussion: IFPs of the small bowel require complete resection. Surgery should be performed as early as possible to prevent complications like intussusceptions, ischemia, and necrosis. Conclusions: In these rare tumors, the collaboration between surgeons and endoscopists is indispensable to improve the patient's prognosis.
