Title:  Oral manifestations of Gardnerís syndrome in young patients: report of three cases

Abstract:  Background In young patients, multiple osteomas in the jaw and sebaceous cysts are signs which usually precede the diagnosis of Gardnerís syndrome. It is the association of multiple colonic polyps (familial adenomatosis polyposis coli) and extracolonic findings. By the fourth decade of life the colonic polyps undergo malignant transformation. Case reports The oral manifestations are described in three young patients diagnosed with Gardnerís syndrome that emphasises the importance of the role of the paediatric dentist in the early detection of multiple jaw osteomas and other dental abnormalities, which may lead to further investigation and treatment.
