BANNURA C, Guillermo; SOTO C, Daniel  y  VIAL P, María Teresa. Sporadic juvenile multiple polyposis: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.9, pp.1065-1070. ISSN 0034-9887.

We report a 15 years old girl presenting with severe hematochezia with secondary anemia and hemodynamic decompensation, rectal prolapse and spontaneous anal elimination of polyps. She had no family history of polyposis and a search for the disease in her close relatives was negative. A complete diagnostic work up did not find polyps in other segments of the digestive tract. Colonoscopy showed more than 200 polyps between the cecum and the rectum. Pathological analysis confirmed the presence of retention polyps with adenomatous areas and mild atypia. The patient was subjected to a proctocolectomy with ileal pouch and sphincteric preservation, using a mechanical suture. Postoperative evolution was uneventful and after 24 months of follow up, the patient is asymptomatic, with two stool movements per day and without incontinence (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 1065-70)
