Abstract

A 22-year-old white woman in whom multicentric papillary carcinoma of the thyroid developed two years after prophylactic colectomy for intestinal polyposis is reported. This association has been observed by others. Patients with familial polyposis coli are at risk for a variety of malignancies other than colonic, and careful life-long surveillance is necessary.
