Adenomatous Polyposis Coli with Adenocarcinoma - A Case Report
Sujata S Giriyan, Ganesh B D
Adenomatous polyps are non-invasive tumours of epithelial cells arising from the mucosa with the potential to become malignant. About 5% to 10% of people who develop colorectal cancer have inherited gene defects that can cause familial cancer syndromes and lead them getting the disease. The most common type of FAP causes people to develop hundreds or thousands of polyps in their colon and rectum, usually in their teens or early childhood. Cancer usually develops in one or more of these polyps as early as age 20. We herein report a case of a 59 year old male patient who presented with bleeding per rectum and pain abdomen since two months and on ultrasound examination multiple polyps were seen in the colon. Abdominoperineal resection was done and histopathological examination revealed that it was multiple adenomatous polyposis coli with moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma.
