MURARO, Cirilo Luiz de Pardo Mêo; CUNHA, Hercio Azevedo de Vasconcelos  and  FREITAS JUNIOR, Carlos Eduardo de. Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Rev. Col. Bras. Cir. [online]. 2000, vol.27, n.6, pp.427-429. ISSN 0100-6991.

The authors report a 49 years old, female patient who have been operated on several times (antrectomy with Billroth II reconstruction, partial gastrectomy with troncular vagotomy and total gastrectomy) in the last 5 years for recurrent ulcer disease. Three months ago, an abdomen ultra sound was done showing multiples images that suggested liver metastasis, which was confirmed by CT and RM. Two months ago, one new abdomen CT specifically to pancreas was done showing an expansive process in pancreas. Serial gastrine was 1532 pg/ml at the time (reference - until 115) and among clinical history and images exams Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome was suggested, a rare disease case.

Keywords : Zollinger-Ellison syndrome; Gastrinoma.
