A 30-year-old man was admitted with anemia. Colonoscopy showed diffuse small polyps in the colon, 1 cancer in the sigmoid colon, and 2 cancers in the rectum. He was diagnosed with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Total colectomy was conducted laparoscopically through 5 trocars, and a total proctocolectomy (TPC ) was performed. The operating time was 9 hours and 30 minutes, and intraoperative blood loss was 20 g. On the 1st postoperative day, he started oral intake. On the 14th postoperative day, he was discharged from our hospital. We thus consider laparoscopic resection to be a very useful technique for FAP.
