Gardner's syndrome (GS) is an autosomal dominant, well-documented disease with characteristic systemic and maxillofacial manifestations. The diagnosis of GS is established by the presence of simultaneous findings of intestinal or colorectal polyposis and jaw pathologies. Multiple polyps of GS are likely to become carcinomas at older ages. Cooperation between medical disciplines is important in the diagnosis of GS. Patient with multiple adenoid polyposis should be referred to dental examination in order to discard GS. Dental radiographic examination may be crucial in the primary diagnosis of the disease. In this case report, a case of GS is presented with prominent histologic features and the importance of the dental examination in the diagnosis of GS is discussed.
