AbstractAbstract PDF
We report a case of somatostatinoma, which manifested as insulinoma after liver metastasis. A 74-year-old man suffered from diabetes mellitus and jaundice. The abdominal CT scan of this patient showed a mass in the pancreas head, which obstructed biliary duct. He underwent Whipples procedure. Immunohistochemical staining of postoperative specimen disclosed that this tumor was strongly positive for somatostatin. After 4 months, follow up CT scan showed multiple metastatic lesions in the liver. We performed transarterial chemoinfusion two times, but the response was disappointing. After 2 months, he suffered from altered mentality, which was relieved by intake of sugar. Biochemical laboratory findings and immunohistochemical staining of liver biopsy disclosed that the metastatic lesion in this patient was insulinoma. We performed embolization of hepatic artery with gelform. The biochemical response was dramatic, but he died of septic shock, which was caused by gas forming liver abscess. In summary, we report a case of somatostatinoma which manifested as insulinoma after metastasis to the liver.
