Abstract



Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is rare in children, except for a few sporadic reports there is not much information about it in the literature. It is important for pediatricians and paediatric surgeons to be aware that CRC does occur in children, and it should not be excluded only on the basis of the patient\'s age. Its rarity in children has meant a poor understanding of its biological nature and the treatment modalities to be followed

Keywords: Childhood, colorectal carcinoma
