A case of a carcinoid of the duodenum (somatostatin-, serotonin- and ACTH-producing) with carcinoma of the stomach

A case of a carcinoid of the duodenum (somatostatin-, serotonin- and ACTH-producing) with carcinoma of the stomach

Gan No Rinsho. Japan Journal of Cancer Clinics 33(7): 841-847

A case of a duodenal carcinoid which was producing somatostatin, serotonin and ACTH in a 65-year-old man is reported. The patient was found to have a submucosal protruded mass of the duodenal bulb and a tumor mass-like IIa + IIc in the antral portion of the stomach. Subtotal gastrectomy was performed and the histological diagnosis of the tumors were found to be a classical carcinoid of the duodenum and a well-differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma of the stomach. The carcinoid cells of the duodenum had numerous cyto-plasmic granules which were positive by Grimelius staining and negative by Hellerström-Hellmann staining, and 200-300 nm in size, electronmicroscopically. These cells were shown to contain somatostatin, serotonin or ACTH-positive cells by means of monoclonal immunohistochemistry, however, results were negative for gastrin, insulin, glucagon, calcitonin, VIP or PP.
