Peutz-Jegher syndrome presenting with intussusception

Peutz-Jeghers-heilkenni með garnasmokkun

In this case report we describe a patient with a confirmed diagnosis of Peutz-Jegher syndrome. A diagnosis made from a positive tissue sample from the small bowels and characteristic hyperpigmentation on the patient’s lips. This particular patient wasn’t diagnosed till he got intussusception which required an operation. There’s a possibility that the diagnosis could have been made earlier in the patient’s life because of the hyperpigmented macules on his lips in addition to frequent abdominal pain.
