Possible parathyroid origin of gastrin in a patient with multiple endocrine adenopathy type I

The British Journal of Surgery
J CassarW M Cooke


After removal of two large pancreactic insulinomas, although the presenting spontaneous hypoglycaemia was eliminated, severe and persisting haematemesis and melaena supervened with a rise in serum gastrin. The patient had multiple endocrine adenopathy (pituitary, parathyroids and islet cells), but no evidence of a pancreatic gastrin-producing tumour. After emergency gastric operation for the bleeding, the serum gastrin remained high until the hypercalcaemia and hyperparathyroidism had been corrected by subtotal parathyroidectomy. Immunofluorescence studies showed gastrin in the parathyroid tissue.

Adenoma, Islet Cell

Islet Cell Adenoma arises in the islet cells, which are insulin producing cells of the pancreas. These tumors can be either malignant or benign. Discover the latest research on Islet Cell Adenoma here.

Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes

This feed focuses on a rare genetic condition called Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes, which are characterized by autoantibodies against multiple endocrine organs. This can lead to Type I Diabetes.
