Cecal intussusception in an adult with Cronkhite-Canada syndrome relieved by colonoscopy.
Intern Med. 2010; 49(12):1123-6.IM

Abstract

Cronkhite-Canada syndrome (CCS) is a rare, noninherited gastrointestinal polyposis syndrome associated with characteristic ectodermal abnormalities. Here, we report a case of Cronkhite-Canada syndrome with cecal intussusception relieved by colonoscopy. A 52-year-old man who was diagnosed as CCS pathologically two years previously presented abdominal pain and sub fever-up. Physical examination revealed the palpable mass sized approximate 10 cm in diameter in the upper abdominal site, in addition to the symptoms of alopecia, absent fingernails and toenails. However, abdominal wall rigidity and rebound tenderness were never expressed. Abdominal plain CT showed concentric circles from the ascending to the middle of the transverse colon, and a tumor in the lumen at the middle of the transverse colon. Colonoscopic reduction was performed first because we diagnosed it as intussusception due to CCS polyps without peritoneal irritation, and his symptoms were improved dramatically after careful reduction. Therefore, he was able to undergo the laparoscopic ascending colectomy as scheduled.
