Abstract

A case of juvenile polyposis is reported and 271 cases are collected from the literature. The risk for neoplasia is analyzed and the endoscopic or surgical therapy is discussed. The authors conclude that juvenile polyposis should be considered as a challenge to the surgeon with regard to familial adenomatous syndromes, and strongly recommend a close follow-up of patients with juvenile polyposis.
