A 17-Year-Old Boy with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis and Unexpected Endoscopy Findings

A 17-year-old boy with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and a strong family history of the disease (father and paternal grandmother, one uncle, two aunts, and two cousins) initially presented to our clinic at age 15 years for follow-up care of his FAP. The patient’s father, paternal grandmother, uncle, and one of his aunts had all developed colon carcinoma secondary to FAP, and one of his cousins required a complete colectomy and was later diagnosed with gastric cancer. The patient’s father had undergone complete colonic and partial small bowel resection.
