A nonfamilial case of Turcot syndrome (glioma-polyposis syndrome) is described. A 16-year-old male with no siblings first developed a frontal astrocytoma, and was later found to have colonic polyposis with adenocarcinoma. The family history was negative for the syndrome, but his parents were first cousins.
