Hyperplastic polyps are a benign epithelial proliferation and a common type of colorectal and gastric polyps. Malignant change of hyperplatic polyps is rare. Patients with multiple lesions however, tend to have a high frequency of malignancy. Colorectal polyposis syndromes with gastric polyps include familial adenomatous polyposis, Gardners syndrome, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, juvenile polyposis and others. But the case of colorectal hyperplastic polyposis with multiple gastric hyperplastic polyps has not been reported until now. A case was recently experienced involving a 32 year old women with both colorectal and gastric hyperplastic polyposis. Multiple hyperplastic polyps were found in the lower part of the body and the antrum of the stomach, rectosigmoid, transverse and ascending colon. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2000;20:63~67)
