Abstract

This is a case report of juvenile gastrointestinal polyposis involving the gastrointestinal system from the stomach to the rectum. Only few cases have been reported and extra-intestinal manifestations of this syndrome include macrocephaly, hepatosplenomegaly, hypotonia, clubbing of fingers, anemia and protein-losing enteropathy. The disease usually has a poor prognosis, and the children rarely live more than 2 years.
