Abstract

A case of Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome in an 8-yr-old girl with an adenocarcinoma arising in the duodenum and jejunum is herein reported with a 9-yr follow-up. This carcinoma fulfills histologic criteria for malignancy in the Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome. We suggest that this represents a documented case of malignancy arising in a Peutz-Jeghers polyp.
