Flat adenomas are discussed in more detail below. I982). Micro-adenomas, which are invisible to the naked eye and consist of one or a few dysplastic crypts (unicrypt and oligocryptal adenomas), are the earliest lesion identifiable histologically (Fig. 2). They are very rarely seen in "average risk" populations but are well described in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) (BRADBURN et al.
