Gardner Syndrome is a rare multi systemic, autosomal dominant inherited disorder characterized with poliposis, skin and soft tissue tumors. In this syndrome, if prophylactic total colectomy is not performed, malignant neoplasms may develop nearly in all patients. Half of the osteomas occur in head region. Gardner syndrome must be investigated in patients with three or more osteomas. Skin findings include epidermoid cyst, fibroid, lipoma, leiomyoma ve desmoid tumors. We present a case of a 21-year-old patient with polyposis coli and osteoma, which admitted to our hospital with abdominal pain and diarrhea.
