MARCOS ENRIQUEZ, Juan Carlos et al. Primary lymph node gastrinoma. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2022, vol.42, n.2, pp.122-125. ISSN 1022-5129.

Gastrinomas are neuroendocrine tumors usually located in the duodenum and pancreas, in the context of a Multiple Endocrine Neoplasm and forming a Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. The location of this type of lymph node tumor is extremely unusual and its early diagnosis constitutes a real challenge to be able to establish an adequate treatment and manage the complications that these entail. We present the case of a 64-year-old male patient with a lymph node gastrinoma and whose surgical removal resulted in the immediate remission of the patient’s symptoms.

Keywords : Gastrinoma; Lymphadenopathy; Zollinger-Ellison syndrome; Pancreas; Duodenum.
