 Cowden's disease is a rare disease characterized by multiple hamartoma syndrome. To our knowledge, only 30 cases have been previously reported in Japan.

 We reported a case of Cowden's disease in a 43-year-old woman accompanied by polyposis of her entire digestive tract. Small keratotic papule on the face and extremities, papillomatous lesions in the oral cavity, adenomatous goiter, gallbladder polyp, hepatic hemangioma and subcutaneous lipoma of the left foot were also observed.

 In this case, multiple small polyps in the small intestine were clearly demonstrated on double contrast barium study.
