GARDNER’S SYNDROME AS THE FIRST MANIFESTATION OF FAP IN PATIENT WITH METASTATIC RECTAL CANCER - AN EXTREMELY RARE OCCURRENCE
Keywords:Gardener’s Syndrome, FAP (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis), Extra-Colonic Manifestations
Familial adenomatous polyposis [FAP] is a rare autosomal disorder. FAP presenting with Gardner syndrome is even rarer. Gardner syndrome as the first manifestation of FAP without any prior family history is even scarcer. We hereby report the case of 32 years healthy male referred to our otolaryngology clinic with a neck mass and ultimately diagnosed with a case of Gardner syndrome with FAP and advanced rectal Cancer. The patient had a successful gastrointestinal surgery with follow up chemotherapy. Subsequently the patient was followed up at the gastroenterology, oncology and surgical clinic. Literature searched was done and the extra colonic manifestations of the diseases are highlighted in our discussion.
