 Polyposis syndrome is the disease group in which polyps are frequently projected from the mucous membrane of digestive organs in the lumen of the digestive tract. It is classified by its structural image and hereditary presence. Most occur in the stomach and the large intestine, but it is not rare to find it in the small intestine.

Recent capsule endoscopy and double balloon endoscopy attract attention for being very useful not only for detecting them but also for deciding their treatment policy. In particular, hereditary polyposis syndrome has a strong tendency to develop into cancer, so is very important from clinical considerations. In this report, we focus on each polyposis syndrome group and the change occurring in other organs affected by them.
