Abstract

In a 60-year-old woman with an inoperable vipoma, satisfactory improvement of severe watery diarrhea was obtained over a 12-month period by subcutaneous administration of the somatostatin analogue SMS 201-995. It is suggested that SMS 201-995 may be useful in such inoperable cases, or when surgery would carry a high risk.
