A report of a gastrinoma localized preoperatively by endoscopic ultrasound only and a review of the approach to imaging in Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Abstract
The addition of somatostatin receptor scintigraphy and endoscopic ultrasound to the preoperative assessment of patients with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome has improved the ability to localize gastrinomas. We report a patient with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome with a gastrinoma localized preoperatively by endoscopic ultrasound only. We review the literature regarding the sensitivity of somatostatin receptor scintigraphy and endoscopic ultrasound and discuss the approach to imaging in Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
