Clinical Summary[edit]

Approximately four months prior to admission, this 68-year-old male began having "sharp, shooting pains" in the lower abdomen. On admission a CT scan showed a mass in the transverse colon. The patient refused to undergo a laparotomy and declined further treatment. Six months later he returned with severe abdominal pain and a colectomy was performed.

The segment of colon contained numerous polyps and an annular tumor which was 6.7 cm in diameter. Endoscopic examination of the ascending colon revealed two more polyps which were removed.
