[Association of Biermer's anemia and gastric carcinoid tumors].
Rev Med Interne 1998; 19(1):51-4RM

Abstract

BACKGROUND

The occurrence of gastric carcinoid tumors during the cure of pernicious anemia has been reported in the literature. Concerning a new case, we review physiopathological data of this infrequent association.

CASE REPORT

We report the case of a 47-year-old women with pernicious anemia in which gastroscopy found two small tumors developed from enterochromaffin-like cells.

CONCLUSION

These tumors are usually latent and developed from enterochromaffin-like cells. The pathologic and histologic diagnosis is based on positive chromogranin A immunomarking. The physiopathological mechanism studies are in favour of the predominant part of hypergastrinemia following achlorhydria. Usually, evolution is benign and surgical or endoscopic resection recommended.
