A 50-year-old Caucasian woman, without relevant past medical history, was referred to the gastroenterology consultation due to chronic constipation. She had no previous endoscopic evaluation or past surgeries. The digital rectal examination revealed a soft mobile mass at the lower rectum. Pelvic floor dyssynergia was diagnosed on magnetic resonance defecography and, therefore, biofeedback therapy was started. Colonoscopy revealed a light yellowish sessile polyp with 20 mm at the anorectal junction (Figure 1).
