Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome is an autosomally inherited syndrome causing hamartomatous polyps in the small and large bowel and mucocutaneous brown to black melanin spots most common seen in the perioral area. The polyps can occur in the stomach, small bowel and large bowel. They cannot be distuingished from adenomas during endoscopy, and should be remowed if possible. The polyps can cause obstruction or gastrointestinal bleeding. There is a slightly increased risk of gastrointestinal and other malignancies in this disorder.
