FAP is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by numerous polyps, numbering from hundreds to thousands, in intestine. It is a very rare condition with incidence ranging  from 1 in 6000 to 1 in 12000 births. In absence of surgical intervention, their malignant transformation is inevitable. We report this case because of its rarity.
