VARAS-LORENZO, M. J.. Long-standing malignant pancreatic carcinoid treated with octreotide. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2010, vol.102, n.11, pp.662-666. ISSN 1130-0108.
A male presented with a metastatic, plasma serotonin-secreting (high 5-HIAA in urine), malignant pancreatic carcinoid with a carcinoid-like syndrome, and was assessed using ultrasounds (US), computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) and Octreoscan; he sequentially received chemotherapy, interferon and octreotide, with long-term, 12-year survival after diagnosis. Given this unusual case, the second reported in our country, the overall literature is reviewed.
