  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 45-year-old woman was admitted to Izumisaki Hospital with a chief complaint of epigastralgia in January 1978. There was no carcinoid syndrome in her history. Hypotonic duodenography and duodenoscopy revealed a submucosal tumor of the papilla of Vater. Cholecystectomy and transduodenal sphincteroplasty were performed. The specimen of the papilla of Vater was histologically diagnosed as carcinoid tumor and pancreatoduodenectomy was performed two months after the first operation. Histologically tumor cells of uniform size showed island-like, cord-like and ribbon-like structures. Argyrophil reaction by Grimelius method showed argyrophil granules, but argentaffine reaction by the Masson-Fontana method was negative.
