The authors report 3 cases of fundic gland polyposis associated with Gardner's syndrome. Control endoscopies revealed fundic gland polyposis disappearance 14, 14, and 7 years respectively after discovery, and colectomy performed at ages 29, 30, and 32, respectively. This regression, described in autonomous fundic gland polyposis, is poorly documented in Gardner's syndrome. This phenomenon is not related to colectomy. However no explanation is currently available, and further studies are necessary to determine the factors related to the natural history of fundic gland polyposis in familial adenomatosis coli/Gardner's syndrome.
