We report the clinical details of seven patients with familial polyposis. They underwent subtotal colectomy with ileorectostomy, and were treated with 5-fluorouracil suppositories and green tea extract after surgery. Some regression of the polyps in the preserved rectal segment was observed, and no rectal cancer developed in any of these patients.
