Exsanguinating uncontrollable lower gastro intestinal hemorrhage due to juvenile polyposis report of a case
Six of 7 infants afflicted with extensive juvenile polyposis die before 2 yr of age. This report represents the first case of total colectomy, proctectomy and ileostomy carried out in an adolescent girl for massive exsanguinating, uncontrollable gastrointestinal hemorrhage due to involvement of the entire colon and rectum. Six months postoperatively, follow-up examination showed no new lesions in the patient. Prolonged follow-up of the patient and her family is planned.
