Cowden's disease diagnosed through mucocutaneous lesions and gastrointestinal polyposis with recurrent hematochezia, unrevealed by initial diagnosis

Internal Medicine
M KatoS Morinaga


A 51-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of hematochezia and painful keratotic plaques involving both hands. He had gastrointestinal polyposis, and a history of liver hemangiomas and thyroid tumor. Numerous papules on the face and papillomatosis on the oral mucosa were present. A diagnosis was made as a typical case of Cowden's disease according to the criteria proposed by Salem and Steck (J Am Acad Dermatol 8: 686, 1983). The patient was not correctly diagnosed initially in spite of typical manifestations of Cowden's disease, mainly due to his concomitant manifestations which occurred chronologically.
