Juvenile Polyposis Syndrome is a rare condition that is characterized by the development of multiple polyps in the gastrointestinal tract. It is a hamartomatous disorder that was first described in families in 1964. Both sporadic and familial cases with autosomal dominant inheritance have been reported on. Juvenile Polyposis Syndrome is regarded as a distinct from the solitary juvenile polyps that develop in 2% of children and adolescents, and the latter have no malignant potential. We report here on a case of Juvenile Polyposis Syndrome in an 18 year old male along with a review of the relevant literature. The patient had various numbers of different sized pedunculated polyps that were observed throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2009;38:43-46)
