A typical case of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome is reported. A 45-year-old female patient visited our OPD in order to treat her pigmented lower lip. Physical examination showed multiple brown to black hyperpigmented macular lesions on her fingers,lips and buccal mucosa.Gastroenterologic and radiologic examination revealed quite a few gastric polyps, intestinal polyps and colonic polyps. These polyps were proved to be as hamartomatous polyps by histopathologic examination. The results of laboratory tests indicated that the patient had a hypochromic, microcytic anemia. Based on all of the above findings, we confirmed that this is a typical case of Peutz-Jeghers sydrome.
