summary/abstract:

Familial Adenomatous Polyposis – Key Points
FAP is a rare condition associated with multiple bowel polyps or outgrowths from the lining of the large bowel.
There are different types of bowel polyps that can occur in the large bowel or colon. The type of bowel polyp a person has is determined by looking at a sample (biopsy) of the polyp under a microscope.
People with FAP develop adenomatous bowel polyps, hence the name of this condition.
