Abstract An understanding of the pathology and natural history of serrated adenoma of the colorectum has emerged slowly and comparatively recently. In this review, hyperplastic polyps, admixed polyps and serrated adenomas are conceived as a continuum of serrated polyps. Mechanisms underlying the expression of serrated morphology are outlined. The demographic, macroscopic and microscopic features of serrated adenoma are presented but it is stressed that the distinction from other epithelial polyps may not always be straightforward. Molecular studies point to heterogeneity within the serrated pathway and among conditions encompassed by the term serrated polyposis. Management of serrated adenoma is discussed but the need for further research is emphasized. The importance of serrated adenoma as a precancerous lesion has been underestimated. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
