ABSTRACT: Multiple polyposis of the gastro-intestinal tract is a well-understood entity in the surgery of adults. In the pediatric population, it is quite uncommon to come across multiple polyposis coli whilst solitary juvenile (inflammatory) polyps are common digital finding, in rectal examination of cases of bleeding per rectum in young children. We report a case of multiple polyposis of the colon in a 3-year old child who was treated by total colectomy, rectal mucosectomy and S-shaped ileal reservoir and anastomosis with a perfect result. Extensive review of the literature showed that this is the youngest patient of its kind, treated by this technique.
