Pancreatic islet cell tumor presenting as bleeding gastric varices secondary to splenic vein occlusion



Pancreatic islet cell tumor presenting as bleeding gastric varices secondary to splenic vein occlusion



American Journal of Digestive Diseases 22(7): 652-655



This is a report of a patient with a nonfunctioning islet cell tumor of the distal pancreas presenting with a 12 mo. history of recurrent upper gastrointestinal bleeding. The presence of bleeding gastric varices secondary to occlusion of the splenic vein by tumor was established by endoscopy and selective celiac arteriography. Partial pancreatectomy and splenectomy was performed successfully and bleeding from gastric varices has not recurred over a 12 mo. period postoperatively.
