Abstract

A 43 year old man is presented who suffered from the association of a toxic adenoma of the thyroid gland and a Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (ZES) due to a metastasizing duodenal gastrinoma. There were no other signs of a multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome, type I (MEN-I). The patient presented here shows that the association of ZES and thyroid disease may also occur in patients with sporadic ZES.
