Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome is a rare inherited disorder characterized by multiple benign nodular growths (hamartomas) on the mucous lining of the intestinal wall; Affected individuals also have dark skin discolorations, especially around the lips and mucous membranes of the mouth----------[nord 2005]-----------------------------------------------------
