The mucosa is tan and shows normal folds. In the mid portion of the mucosal surface, corresponding with the polypoid mass on the serosa, there is a small raised papilla with a pinpoint lumen which appears to have a tortuous connection with the serosal polypoid mass. The mucosa surrounding the papilla is slightly edematous with focal erosions. Within the wall of the polypoid mass, there are multiple round tan -white nodules noted.
