Abstract
Juvenile polyps are common and cause painless hematochezia in preschool and school-aged children. Juvenile polyps of the colon are usually solitary and considered to be inflammatory of hamatomatous in nature without malignant potential. Multiple juvenile polyposis is characterized by large numbers withch is spread to the colon or throughout the gastrointestinal tract. We experienced a nonfamilial multiple juvenile polyposis in a 12 yr-old male patient who had hospitalized because of intermittent rectal bleeding accompanied with crampy abdominal pain for a year. Double-contrast barium enema demonstrated multiple polypoid lesions on the entire colon and rectum. On coonoscopy, numerous polyps were seen and twenty-five of these were removed through three times. All of the polyps removed were seen and twenty-five of these were removed through three times. All of the polyps removed were typical juvenile retension plyps microscopically. Colectomy and sigmoidoscopic polypectomy were performed. Postoperative course was not complicated but 5 months later abdominal pain became worse, so colonoscopic polypectomy was performed again. After the polypectomy, he was discharged against advice.
