Core Tip Cronkhite-Canada syndrome (CCS) is a rare disease of unknown etiology. The optimal treatment for CCS remains similarly unknown. Treatment with corticosteroids is considered the mainstay treatment because of its high efficacy, but the therapeutic strategy for steroid-resistant CCS is not yet established. The current report describes a case of CCS wherein the initial therapy of corticosteroids, gastrointestinal symptoms were also resolved and polyps were significantly reduced. Followed by mesalazine monotherapy led to long-lasting remission. Corticosteroids and mesalazine are potential treatment options for CCS.
