GONZALEZ-LOPEZ, Rogelio et al. Primary hepatic gastrinoma, extremely rare case presentation and its surgical resolution, in a third level hospital in Mexico. Cir. cir. [online]. 2022, vol.90, n.1, pp.109-113.  Epub Feb 14, 2022. ISSN 2444-054X.

The gastrinomas are rare functional neuroendocrine neoplasms, most are localized to the duodenum (70-90%) or the pancreas (2-30%), but less common ectopic sites have been reported. The primary hepatic gastrinoma is extremely rare, with less tan 40 cases reported in the medical literature. Its low incidence and its non specific clinical presentation make it a difficult disease to diagnose. Providing a timely diagnosis the patient can be treated by surgical resection with high chances of success. The objective of this paper is to describe a case of primary hepatic gastrinoma in Mexico, successfully treated by right liver segmentectomy.

Keywords : Primary hepatic gastrinoma; Surgical treatment; Segmentectomy.
