Abstract
Peutz-Jeghers syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by clinical triad of mucocutaneous pigmentation, gastrointestinal polyps and familial occurrence. Many cases have been reported from all over the world, but rare in Korean literature.
This paper presents a case of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome and a brief review of pertinent literature.
A 21 year old man was hospitalized with the symptoms of intermittent abdominal pain and general weakness. Physical examination on admission revealed pale appearance with anemic conjunctiva, typical dark brownish pigmentation on the lower lip, buccal mucosa, digits and sole. Gastrointestinal X-ray studies showed no abnormal findings except a large rectal polyp, but multiple polyps of various sizes and shapes in the duodenum and a small polyp in the gastric antrum were observed by endoscopic examination. He also had familial occurrence.
