Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome (PJS) is an autosomal dominant intestinal polyposis syndrome characterised by the presence of hamartomatous polyps and mucocutaneous pigmentation. Prolapse of the polyps through the anus is an infrequent manifestation in children with PJS, and this complication is extremely rare in adult patients. We report the case of a 30-year-old man recently diagnosed with PJS who was seen at the emergency department because of the abrupt onset of severe anal pain with a foreign body sensation in the anal canal and rectal bleeding. Physical examination revealed a giant prolapsed polyp. © 2016 BMJ Publishing Group Ltd. Source

Alcohol and tobacco abuse are the main risk factors for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), but other conditions that induce chronic irritation of the esophageal mucosa have also been attributed to it. For example, long-standing achalasia increases 16 times the risk of developing ESCC. We report the case of a patient with long-standing achalasia who developed ESCC. Although this complication is infrequent, it should be remembered by clinicians who treat patients with achalasia to detect early stages cancer. Copyright 2015 BMJ Publishing Group.
