Hereditary mixed polyposis syndrome-2 (HMPS2) is characterized by colonic polyps of mixed hyperplastic, adenomatous, and occasional juvenile types. Polyposis eventually progresses to colorectal cancer (Cao et al., 2006). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of HMPS, see HMPS1 (601228). [from OMIM]
