Abstract

VALADAO, Marcus et al. The importance of clinical suspicion on the diagnosis and treatment of hereditary colorectal cancer. Rev bras. colo-proctol. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.4, pp. 454-461. ISSN 0101-9880.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-98802008000400008.

In this article we report the case of a patient with Lynch syndrome (HNPCC) who developed metachronic rectal cancer in a short time interval after the primary tumor had been treated (right colon cancer). The objective of this case report is to point out the importance of clinical suspicion in the diagnosis of hereditary colorectal cancer and its therapeutics implications.

Keywords : Colorectal hereditary cancer; diagnosis; treatment.
