Abstract

Duodenal somatostatinoma is a rare cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. We report the case of a 55-yr-old woman who presented with upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage due to a duodenal somatostatinoma. We discuss the characteristics of these tumors, and review the literature on diagnostic workup and management.
