Resumen

URDANGARIN, ANGÉLICA et al. Pancreatic VIPoma: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2010, vol.138, n.7, pp.841-846. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872010000700008.

Neuroendocrine tumors are uncommon, including VIPoma that produces vasoactive intestinal polypeptide. We report a 45-year-old female presenting with a history of diarrhea lasting three months. An abdominal CAT scan showed a solid tumor in the body of the pancreas. A fine needle aspiration biopsy of the tumor was compatible with a neuroendocrine tumor. The patient was subjected to a partial pancreatectomy, excising a 4 cm diameter tumor. The pathological study was compatible with a neuroendocrine carcinoma. There was no regional lymph node involvement. During the postoperative period the results of serum vasoactive intestinal polypeptide were received. These were 815.9 pg/ml before surgery and normalized after the operation.
