An example of a high-risk polyp is a 12-mm tubular adenoma with focal high-grade dysplasia.
The second point is more contentious and is the debate of "top-down" versus "bottom up" morphogenesis in the histogenetic origination of colonic tubular adenoma. A top-down morphogenesis or origination was first proposed by Shih et al (2) by looking at the molecular characteristics of cells isolated from the bases and the orifices of the same crypt in small colorectal adenomas.

Tubular adenoma (A) and tubulovillous adenoma (B) composed of neoplastic epithelium with crowded columnar cells demonstrating hyperchromatic and pseudostratified nuclei without loss of nuclear polarity.
Perhaps follow up should be analogous to that for sporadic tubular adenoma of the colon.
Until 1990, three types of lesions were associated with the development of colorectal neoplasia: tubular adenomas, tubulovillous adenomas, and villous adenomas.
