Read the abstract of the medical case
neuroendocrine tumor and hypochlorhydria-related hypergastrinemia: a case
Zollinger–Ellison syndrome is
characterized by recurrent peptic ulcers and diarrhea that result from
gastrin-secreting neuroendocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract; nevertheless,
severe hypergastrinemia may also have alternative pathogenetic explanations.
A 61-year-old woman of Caucasian
origin presented with a history of epigastric pain and early satiety, severe
hypergastrinemia (approximately 2000 pg/mL) and a neuroendocrine polyp in the
corpus of her stomach. Chronic atrophic gastritis and intestinal metaplasia was
present, but she denied use of acid suppressant drugs and the results of tests
for Helicobacter pylori as well as gastric parietal cell and intrinsic
factor antibodies were negative. She underwent a radical gastric tangential
resection. Six months later, serum gastrin was still elevated despite lack of
recurrence of tumor.
The clinical picture was
suggestive for a hypochlorhydria-related hypergastrinemia with subsequent
development of a non-secreting carcinoid. We suggest a periodic endoscopic
follow-up in patients with severe hypochlorhydria-related hypergastrinemia in
order to earlier detect neuroendocrine polyps.
