  • Look Inside

 Detection of upper gastrointestinal (GI) lesions may lead to diagnosis of gastrointestinal polyposis. Upper GI lesions of Cowden's isease, adenomatosis coli,Turcot syndrome,Peutz-Jeghers syndrome,Juvenile polyposis,Cronkhite-Canada syndorome were stratified by location (oral cavity, esophagus, gastroduodenum), and their location and morphological characteristics were described.

 Esophageal polyposis was specific to Cowden's disease. Gastroduodenal lesions of gastrointestinal polyposis were evaluated in terms of distribution, size, shape, uniformity, irregularity in size of the lesions, and their relation to mucosal folds, then differential diagnosis were discussed.
