Familial polyposis is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. It is characterized by the progressive development of hundreds to thousands of adenomsteus polyps in the large intestine. A patient who inherited the gene for familial polyposis is asually asymptomatic until after puberty, at which time polyps begin to appear. The disease at first non-malignant but after an interval of a few months or years, the development of colon cancer is inevitable. In Korea, several cases were reported, but almost all of the cases had incomplete familial histories. We experienced one case of familial polypasis in 33-year old Korean male who had no malignant changes in the adenomatous polyps. Among his family, his father and his brother have adenomatous polps in the colon and the rectum confirmed through total colonoscopy with biopsy. We report a case of familial polyposis of colon with a brief review of literatures.
