Colorectal polyp is the leading cause of bleeding per rectum in children. The juvenile polyp is the most common kind of polyp identified in the pediatric age group. The term giant rectal polyp in the pediatric age group has not been reported in the literature. We treated two patients who presented with anemia, generalized weakness, and bleeding per rectum. A giant juvenile polyp was determined as the cause. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first description of giant rectal polyp in the pediatric population.
