Abstract

Many aspects of MUTYH mutation still need to be clarified and one of them regards the different phenotypic expressions. Although the majority of reported cases manifested attenuated adenomatous polyposis, hyperplastic polyps and serrated adenomas appear to be more common than expected. Presenting hyperplastic polyposis syndrome is very unusual and may represent a clinical dilemma for correct management. Current evidence suggests to handle MUTYH-associated polyposis as typical FAP.
