Digestive tract polyps are one of the common diseases of the digestive tract, among which gastric polyps and large intestine polyps are the most common. Due to the high risk of gastric adenoma and common intestinal adenoma, gastrointestinal polyps have attracted extensive attention from clinicians. Its pathogenesis has not yet been fully elucidated, and the etiology is considered to be related to genetics, diet and accompanying diseases, etc. Endoscopic resection is often used in treatment, while traditional Chinese medicine has increasingly obvious advantages in the prevention, treatment and postoperative rehabilitation of gastrointestinal polyps through examination of the cause and syndrome differentiation. In this paper, the etiology of digestive tract polyps was reviewed in order to be helpful for clinical diagnosis and treatment.
