Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is mainly characterized by the development of a large number of polyps in the gastrointestinal tract and by the risk of developing adenocarcinomas. We present the case of a woman diagnosed with FAP and liver metastases. Histological analysis revealed both diseases to be secondary to a neuroendocrine tumor. To date, only three cases showing the simultaneous occurrence of these two entities have been published. Currently, there is no genetic basis to explain the coexistence of these two diseases, both of which have a very low prevalence.
