This is a classic case report of a rare giant fibrovascular polyp (GFP) of the oesophagus in a 50-year-old male patient, who two years prior had regurgitated the polyp and swallowed it again. He only sought medical professionals after losing 25 kg and having severe dysphagia. The GFP, weight 520 g and size 21 × 9 × 7 cm, was removed in toto with a cervical excision following intraluminal marking of the base of the polyp during oesophagoscopy. On histological examination the GFP was found to represent a well-differentiated liposarcoma.
