NIH Rare Diseases:46 Juvenile polyposis syndrome (jps) is a disorder characterized by having a susceptibility to developing hamartomatous polyps in the gastrointestinal (gi) tract. a hamartomatous polyp is a benign (noncancerous) tumor-like malformation made up of an abnormal mixture of cells and tissues. in jps, these polyps can occur in the stomach, small intestine, colon, and rectum. the term "juvenile" refers to the type of polyp and not the age at which the polyps develop. most people with jps have some polyps by the age of age 20. the number of polyps in affected people vary. while some people may have only four or five polyps over their lifetime, others (even in the same family) may have more than 100. if the polyps are left untreated, they can result in bleeding and anemia. most juvenile polyps are benign, although over time they can become cancerous. in families with jps, the risk for developing a gi cancer ranges from 9% to 50%. most of this risk is due to colon cancer. the incidence of colorectal cancer in people with jps is 17%-22% by the age of 35 and as high as 68% by the age of 60. cancers of the stomach, upper gi tract, and pancreas have also been observed. to date, mutations in two genes are known to cause jps: bmpr1a and smad4. management of jps includes routine colonoscopy with removal of any polyps to reduce the risk of bleeding, intestinal obstruction, and colon cancer. when the number of polyps is large, removal of all or part of the colon or stomach may become needed. additional screening can include upper endoscopy, complete blood count, and monitoring for symptoms such as rectal bleeding and/or anemia abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, or change in stool size, shape, and/or color. last updated: 5/11/2015
MalaCards based summary: Polyposis, Juvenile Intestinal, also known as juvenile polyposis syndrome, is related to colorectal cancer and chromosome 10q23 deletion syndrome juvenile polyposis of infancy, included, and has symptoms including malabsorption, gastrointestinal hemorrhage and intestinal polyposis. An important gene associated with Polyposis, Juvenile Intestinal is SMAD4 (SMAD Family Member 4), and among its related pathways are IL-2 Gene Expression in Activated and Quiescent T-Cells and ALK2 signaling events. Affiliated tissues include colon, small intestine and pancreas, and related mouse phenotypes are liver/biliary system and renal/urinary system.
Disease Ontology:11 An autosomal dominant disease that is characterized by predisposition to hamartomatous benign polyps in the gastrointestinal tract, specifically in the stomach, small intestine, colon, and rectum.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Juvenile polyposis syndrome: Autosomal dominant gastrointestinal hamartomatous polyposis syndrome in which patients are at risk for developing gastrointestinal cancers. The lesions are typified by a smooth histological appearance, predominant stroma, cystic spaces and lack of a smooth muscle core. Multiple juvenile polyps usually occur in a number of Mendelian disorders. Sometimes, these polyps occur without associated features as in JPS; here, polyps tend to occur in the large bowel and are associated with an increased risk of colon and other gastrointestinal cancers.
Genetics Home Reference:24 Juvenile polyposis syndrome is a disorder characterized by multiple noncancerous (benign) growths called juvenile polyps. People with juvenile polyposis syndrome typically develop polyps before age 20; however, in the name of this condition "juvenile" refers to the characteristics of the tissues that make up the polyp, not the age of the affected individual. These growths occur in the gastrointestinal tract, typically in the large intestine (colon). The number of polyps varies from only a few to hundreds, even among affected members of the same family. Polyps may cause gastrointestinal bleeding, a shortage of red blood cells (anemia), abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Approximately 15 percent of people with juvenile polyposis syndrome have other abnormalities, such as a twisting of the intestines (intestinal malrotation), heart or brain abnormalities, an opening in the roof of the mouth (cleft palate), extra fingers or toes (polydactyly), and abnormalities of the genitalia or urinary tract.
