Abstract

We describe three cases of juvenile intestinal polyposis in children aged 9-13 years. Ulcerative colitis in two of them and Crohn's disease in one of them were initially diagnosed. These subjects came to us for symptom persistence in spite of medical (sulfasalazine and or corticosteroids) and dietetic therapy. Further an appropriate investigations were therefore necessary; endoscopy and histological study of the specimen drawn by fibroscopy were decisive for the diagnosis. The accuracy of the endoscopy is of valuable help in uncertain situations as in those described.
