Abstract

A unique family with a distinct syndrome of adenomatous colonic polyps and sebaceous cysts without osseous or soft tissue abnormalities is presented. One member had benign gastric polyps limited to the upper half of the stomach and another had a medulloblastoma of the cerebellum. A histologic feature in the colon of the propositus was the presence of atypical epithelium in flat mucosa as well as in the colonic polyps.
