    ABSTRACT: Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is an autosomal dominant inherited disease characterized by hundreds of adenomatous polyps in the large intestine. Almost all affected untreated patients will die from colorectal cancer (CRC) at the age of 40-50 years. The Balearic Islands Polyposis Registry was established in 1988. The aim of the present study was to evaluate changes in the prevalence of CRC and the prognosis of FAP, before and after the establishment of the registry. The diagnosis of FAP was defined by history, clinical examination, histopathological assessment and/or genetic testing. In this study we compare the data of probands and call-up patients. To evaluate the impact of the registry, selected variables were calculated for the periods 1970-1987 and 1988-2005. At the end of 2005 the registry included information of 19 families with 52 affected members (19 probands, 33 call-up). Thirty-six patients were alive and 16 had died. The cumulative 15 years survival was 82% in call-up cases compared with 47% in probands (p < 0.05). The cumulative 15 years survival was 87% for the period 1988-2005, compared with 33% for the period 1970-1987 (p < 0.001). The frequency of CRC was 72% for the period 1970-1987 and 21% for the period 1988-2005 (p < 0.005). The survival of the call-up patients was significantly improved as compared to the probands. Since the establishment of the registry, the frequency of CRC has decreased considerably, and the prognosis has improved substantially in FAP patients.

    ABSTRACT: Background and objective Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is an autosomal dominant inherited disease characterized by hundreds of adenomatous polyps in the large intestine. Almost all afected untreated patients will die from colorectal cancer (CRC) at the age of 40-50 years. The Balearic Islands Polyposis Registry was established in 1988. The aim of the present study was to evaluate changes in the prevalence of CRC and the prognosis of FAP, before and after the establishment of the registry.

The frecuency of CRC was 72% for the period 1970-1987 and 21% for the period 1988-2005 (p < 0.005). Conclusions The survival of the call-up patients was significantly improved as compared to the probands. Since the establishment of the registry, the frequency of CRC has decreased considerably, and the prognosis has improved substantially in FAP patients.

    ABSTRACT: Identification of patients with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) can allow colorectal cancer (CRC) prevention through colonoscopy and polypectomies. The purpose of this study was to report the clinical characteristics of HNPCC families in our registry. HNPCC was identified using the Amsterdam criteria. Familial clustering of CRC and extracolonic cancers were investigated in families. Individuals at risk were offered annual colonoscopy, starting from the age of 25 years. Twelve HNPCC families were identified. There were 46 cases of CRC in 38 patients. The mean age at diagnosis of CRC was 45.4 +/- 12.7 years (range 25-73 years). In patients with documented disease, right-sided tumors predominated. Eleven patients with extracolonic cancer were identified (six tumors located in the endometrium). Of 43 at-risk individuals, 29 accepted surveillance. Our data confirm the importance of the family history in identifying HNPCC. This study confirms previously described characteristics in HNPCC, namely, early age at onset of CRC, right-sided predominance, multiple synchronous and metachronous neoplasms, and increased extracolonic cancers. This is the first study of clinical data in a Spanish HNPCC registry.
