Uncommon case of gastrinoma in a child.Eur J Pediatr Surg. 1996 Jun; 6(3):173-4.EJ
Gastrinoma is a kind of neuroendocrine tumor very rare in children. It can be described as solitary and has been reported in the liver and in the kidney; or as part of MEN type I (tumors of parathyroids, pancreatic islets and pituitary). We report here, a solitary and huge pancreatic gastrinoma in a young girl with a Zollinger-Ellison (Z-E) syndrome, whose diagnosis was delayed by misunderstanding of the symptoms.
