[Sporadic colonic juvenile polyps in adults].


Sporadic colonic juvenile polyps are uncommon in adults. We report three cases for which clinical manifestations were presence of occult blood in the stool, rectal bleeding or chronic diarrhea. Two of these polyps occurred in the caecum which is an uncommon localisation. Endoscopic characteristics of these polyps were indistinguishable from adenomas. Endoscopic resection was complicated in one case by bleeding.
