The Zollinger-Ellison syndrome in a child.
Gut. 1969 Oct; 10(10):800-3.Gut

Abstract

The Zollinger-Ellison syndrome was encountered in a boy aged 11 years who presented with a bulbar duodenal ulcer causing intractable pain and bleeding. The diagnosis was made by finding an overnight fasting gastric secretion of 1,300 ml containing 134 m-equiv/HCl, and little change of secretion after maximal histamine stimulus. A circumscribed non-beta islet cell pancreatic tumour was excised, with antrectomy. Postoperative acid secretion was normal and the boy was well after being followed up for 15 months. The diagnosis and management are discussed, as the view that total gastrectomy must be performed in all cases of the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is questioned.
