Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome Causing Gastroduodenal Intussusception : A Rare Case Report
Keywords:Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, , gastric polyp, gastroduodenal intussusception
Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a rare disease characterized by melanotic macular lesions over the pulp of fingers, in oral cavity mucosa, lips, and hamartomatous gastric and intestinal polyps. They usually present with intestinal intussusception or intestinal bleeding; gastroduodenal intussusception is an infrequent presentation. Endoscopic resection or complete surgical excision of the polyp is the treatment of choice. We here present a case of a seven year male with multiple gastric polyps presenting as gastric outlet obstruction.
