The value of screening and central registration of families with familial adenomatous polyposis : a study of 82 families in The Netherlands.
Eighty-two families had been registered by the end of 1988.
Analysis of the pedigrees showed that 204 family members at risk had not yet been sceened.
The diagnosis of familial adenomatous polyposis was histologically confimed in 230 patients.
These patients were subdivided into two groups.
Group A comprised patients with familial adenomatous polyposis referred because they were symptomatic, and Group B relatives of these patients who were found by screening to have familial adenomatus polyposis.
The authors compared these groups with respect to the occurrence of colorectal carcinoma.
