Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is characterized by scattered black pigmentations on fingers and lips and multiple polyps in the gastrointestinal tract. Patients with PJS often have severe complications secondary to multiple large polyps. Herein, we presented a young woman complicated with a large polyp in her colon without any clinical symptoms. We also emphasized the necessity of early diagnosis and treatment of multiple polyps in such patients.
