ABSTRACT: Colorectal carcinomas are rare in children. Between 1993 and 1998 only 2 cases were treated in our institute. Hospital records and world literature were reviewed. Laparatomy was performed in both the cases. The primary tumor site was in the hepatic flexure in the first case and in the rectum in the second. Right Hemicolectomy was done in the first case and low anterior resection in the second. In both the cases chemotherapy was given (5FU).
