Title: Proposal for a radiological classification of multiple adenomatosis of the colon
Authors: BELLOMI, MASSIMO (First author)
Abstract: The double contrast enemas of 47 patients with multiple adenomatosis of the colon and rectum were analyzed. According to the density and the distribution of polyps on the mucosal surface, the radiological patterns were classified into three different groups: sporadic, dense and confluent adenomas. Radiographic patterns of each patient were related to the clinical and pathological data collected during the diagnosis and the follow-up. The clinical and pathological features and the evolution of the disease appear to be different in each group of patients (identified by the radiological classification). The occurrence of cancer at the time of the diagnosis of polyposis is closely correlated either to the number of polyps or to their size and the age of patients. The occurrence of metachronous cancer is correlated only to the number of polyps, not to their size, nor to the surgical treatment of the polyposis. If these data are confirmed on a wider number of patients, the role of radiological survey might become a more prominent one, not only in diagnosing, but also in therapy planning, as well as in the prognostic evaluation of multiple adenomatosis of colon.
