Abstract

A male child who first presented in the second year of life demonstrated all the recognized clinicopathological manifestations of juvenile polyposis with associated birth defects. Subsequent death at age 19 years from adenocarcinoma of the pancreas further broadens the recognized spectrum of possible sequelae in this disorder and is in keeping with current hypotheses of inherent cancer potential throughout the polyposis syndromes.
