Abstract

Cronkhite–Canada syndrome is a nonhereditary syndrome. It is characterized by cutaneous manifestations and gastrointestinal (GI) polyps. Patients may also present with diarrhea and weight loss. Early diagnosis of disease is important to avoid morbidity and mortality. Definitive treatment is not available for Cronkhite–Canada syndrome but supportive care and symptomatic treatment will improve the symptoms and increase the quality of life.
