A 17-year-old female with symptomatic juvenile polyposis coli is described. Colonoscopy demonstrated diffuse multiple colonic and rectal polyps with or without stalk, having either a smooth edematous or ulcerated surface. The histologic features suggested a sequence of change from juvenile polyps to adenomatous polyp. The malignant potential was up to 10%-20%; these lesions should be treated as premalignant, aggressively.
