Aggressive Somatostatinoma, with Associated Pheocromocytoma in a Neurofibromatosis Patient Abstract #340

Introduction: Neurofibromatosis is associated with a neuroendocrine phenotype as pheocromocytoma, primary hyperparathyroidism and gastropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.
Aim(s): We present a case of a male patient with neurofibromatosis and several tumors simultaneously diagnosed.
Materials and methods: D.N., a 42-year-old male patient with a 15 yr history of mild arterial hypertension and neurofibromatosis, suffered an emergency duodenectomy for superior occlusion, caused by a tumor on the duodenum and the first jejune loop. Surgical exploration showed multiple metastasis of less than 1 cm into the peritoneum.
