Abstract

Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a rare, but life-threatening, familial inherited disease, characterized by mucocutaneous pigmentation and hamartomatous polyps. The estimated incidence of PJS ranges from 1/50,000 to 1/200,000. PJS can significantly increase the risk of malignancies, and especially gastrointestinal malignancies. Reported here are 4 cases of PJS in one family.
