Length of Episode
Peutz-jeghers syndrome (PJS) is an inherited syndrome, characterized by the development of gastrointestinal polyps and characteristic mucocutaneous freckling. Individuals that present with PJS tend to have polyps often in their small intestine as well as their stomach and large intestine. Recently the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) group published the first set of guidelines in treating PJS in pediatric patients.
Hear from Thomas Attard MD, a core contributing author to the ESPGHAN guidelines and Caitlin Lawson, MS, CGC, on how Children’s Mercy manages pediatric patients in view of the new recommendations and how novel techniques available at Children’s Mercy impact patient management and outcomes.
