Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 42-year-old Lithuanian male had up to 15 watery stools a day and lost 28 kg in three months. he had onychodystrophy, alopecia, hyperpigmentation of the skin of the forehead and a pale tongue. Endoscopy revealed multiple gastric polyps, a 'carpeted' duodenum, diffuse colorectal polyposis with fewer lesions in the rectum, and several thousand colonic polyps up to 3 cm in size. A severe protein-losing enteropathy (PLE) associated with Cronkhite-Canada syndrome (CCS) was confirmed as his blood serum total protein fell to 24.6 g/L and the albumin to 7.0 g/L. © 2013 The Authors.
