The Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome (CCS) is a monfamilial disorder of adults characterized by diffuse gastro-intestinal polyposis, ectodermal changes consisting of alopecia, dystrophy of nails and cutaneous hyper-pigmentation. The pathogenesis and the causes of CCS remain unknwon but the symptoms such as diarrhea and malnutrition are generally progressive, and the prognosis is knwon to be poor. Though the definitive treatment is not well known, it has been reported that the conservative management is the most important treatment, and that the clinical sourse can be reversible. One case was experienced involving Cronkhite-Canada Syndromen in a patient who was managed by conservative treatment and an other who was treated by corticosteroid. These two cases are reported herein with a review of corresponding literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2000; 21:543-548)
