Yes: Pseudopolyps in ulcerative colitis are islands of normal mucosa that remain between the broad ulcers.

Yes: "pseudotumors" are the remnants of normal mucosa left behind when active colitis has damaged the colon lining all around. When biopsies are done the pseudotumor looks nearly normal under the microscope and the surrounding areas are severely damaged.
