Polyps! Polyps! And More Polyps! - The First Case of Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome in Malaysia.
Med J Malaysia. 2016 02; 71(1):37-8.MJ

Abstract

Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome (CCS) is a syndrome characterised by a constellation of signs including but not limited to onychodystrophy of the finger and toe nails, skin hyperpigmentation and alopecia. Endoscopic features showed hamartomatous polyps involving all segments of the gastrointestinal tract with the characteristic exception of being oesophageal sparring. These polyps show confirmation by the presence of eosinophils and mast cells at the lamina propria upon histological studies.
