ABSTRACT

A case is reported here of juvenile polyposis in a 15- year-old girl. She was diagnosed upon the assessment of the dysenteric syndrome. Coloscopy and gastro- scopy had shown polyps of variable size whose histological study confirmed the hamartomatous character typical of the youthful non adenomatous polyps free of dysplasia. There was no localization in the small bowel. Coloprotectomy with ileoanal anastomosis was carried out in view of the importance of diarrhoea and the impacts on the general state of health.
