Adenocarcinoma of the rectum arising in a hamartomatous polyp in a patient with Peutz-Jeghers syndrome.

Abstract

The malignant potential of the hamartomatous polyps in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome has been debated. Although this is a very rare event, these polyps can undergo carcinomatous transformation, as demonstrated by this report of a 37-year-old man with well-documented Peutz-Jeghers syndrome who developed an invasive grade 2 adenocarcinoma on the surface of a hamartomatous polyp in the rectum.
