Peutz–Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is inherited as an autosomal dominant disorder presenting as hamartomatous polyps in the small bowel, mucocutaneous pigmentation and with a predisposition to develop cancer. We report a case of PJS, with an adenomatous giant gastric polyp. The purpose is to highlight that adenomatous giant gastric polyp may be an extremely rare presentation of PJS. Awareness of this possibility will help us in not missing out these atypical cases of PJS.
