UMHS Home/Logo Consult Request Guidelines

for Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP)

Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP)
Suggested Pre-Referral Evaluation and Management Guidelines Referral is indicated when:
  • patient with FAP is ready to discuss and proceed with surgery (often late adolescence/early adulthood)
  • malignancy is detected
Patient should have colonoscopy demonstrating findings consistent with this diagnosis. Genetic testing and consultation with Cancer Center Genetics is recommended and can be coordinated along with surgical evaluation.

If colonoscopy and biopsy were performed outside of the UMHS system, reports should be faxed and pathology slides should be mailed for confirmatory review by our pathologists at or before the time of the clinic visit. Receiving these prior to the clinic visit is preferable.

Suggested Additional Test/Management Prior to Specialty Visit - Genetic testing
- If malignancy is detected, CT scan with IV and po contrast of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis within 6 weeks of the clinic visit

Reports of any testing performed outside of the UMHS system and radiologic images on CD should be available for review at or before the time of the clinic visit. Receiving these prior to the clinic visit is preferable.
