A 67-year-old woman presented with hematochezia and an episode of transient expressive dysphasia. She was found to have multiple colonic polyps with adenocarcinomatous changes.

This case illustrates the rare presentation of Turcot syndrome - a hereditary colorectal polyposis syndrome - in an older adult.
