Upper gastrointestinal polyps commonly occur in patients with familial polyposis coli; but the occurrence of gastric carcinoma is very rare in this disorder. We report a case of intramucosal gastric carcinoma in a patient with familial polyposis coli and multiple gastrointestinal adenomatous polyps.

    Patients with FAP (familial adenomatous polyposis) are known to be at high risk for duodenal cancer. Although the adenoma-carcinoma sequence is thought to exist in the duodenum, clinical observation of the development of duodenal adenoma to cancer has rarely been reported. We outline a 44-yr-old...
