A 15-year-old girl with Duke's B mucinous carcinoma of the rectosigmoid was treated with surgical resection and adjuvant chemotherapy. The patient is alive and has been disease-free for 15 months. Colorectal carcinoma is extremely rare in children and adolescents. Adenocarcinoma of colon is a virulent disease in children and has a poor prognosis. This is because of the poor histological characteristics and difficulty in diagnosis.
