Abstract

Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome (BRRS) is an overgrowth syndrome and polyposis condition, which carries an increased risk for development of benign and malignant tumors of various tissues and organs. A 9-year-old boy with BRRS who had multiple subcutaneous mesenchymal tumors and follicular adenoma of the thyroid and a 14-year-old boy with multiple subcutaneous mesenchymal tumors and gastrointestinal polyposis are presented, with special emphasis on the surgical management of these patients.
