BACKGROUND Enterochromaffinlike (ECL) cell carcinoids recently observed in rats stimulated new interest in gastric endocrine tumors arising in humans. METHODS Paraffin-embedded sections of 55 endocrine tumor cases were stained with H&E, mucin tests were performed, and immunoperoxidase was used for detecting endocrine markers; 23 cases were also investigated ultrastructurally. RESULTS Forty-five argyrophil carcinoids, 9 neuroendocrine carcinomas, and 1 gastrinoma were identified. Three… Expand
Classification of gastric neuroendocrine tumors and its clinicopathologic significance.
TLDR
A correct identification of different types of gastric endocrine tumors has major implications for the treatment and prognosis of the patients. Expand
Achlorhydria, parietal cell hyperplasia, and multiple gastric carcinoids: a new disorder.
TLDR
A 54-year-old woman who had multiple gastric carcinoid tumors arising in the setting of marked hypergastrinemia associated with a lack of acid production by hypertrophic parietal cells is described, indicating that the clinicopathologic alterations in the 2 cases are not random but, on the contrary, represent a very rare disorder of Gastric carcinoids associated with an intrinsic acid secretion abnormality of theParietal cells. Expand
A CASE OF ENDOCRINE CELL CARCINOMA OF THE STOMACH WITH HYPERGASTRINEMIA AND NON TYPE A GASTRITIS
TLDR
This case is thought valuable in consideration for mechanisms of origin of endocrine cell carcinoma including the possibility of malignant change of carcinoid. Expand
Carcinogenic hypergastrinemia: signet-ring cell carcinoma in a patient with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 with Zollinger-Ellison's syndrome.
TLDR
The authors' immunohistochemical studies might suggest that the gastrinoma-associated excessive progastrin tissue concentrations led to diminished expression of E-cadherin within the gastric mucosa and promoted tumor development of a signet-ring cell carcinoma of the stomach. Expand
Gastric carcinoids: Review a propos of two cases
TLDR
It is demonstrated that classification of these tumours is not always straightforward and the importance of extensive endoscopic sampling in the setting of multiple gastric polypoid lesions is highlighted. Expand
Gastric neuroendocrine tumors: Biology and management
TLDR
Little progress has been made in the treatment of the rare, highly malignant, poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas, which are rapidly fatal, showing only short-lived responses to chemotherapy. Expand
Pattern of gastric endocrine cells in microcarcinoidosis — an immunohistochemical study of 14 gastric biopsies
TLDR
In conclusion, invasive ECL carcinoids seem to be clinically less dangerous than was thought until recently and microcarcinoid gastric biopsies about 0.5 cm in size, are suggestive of adjacent invasive carcinoid. Expand
Multiple gastric carcinoids associated with hypergastrinemia. A review of five cases with clinicopathological analysis and surgical strategies.
TLDR
Five patients with hypergastrinemia and multiple gastric carcinoids, who underwent gastrectomy with regional node dissection, were analyzed and data provide important insights into understanding the biological behavior of multiple gastrics carcinoids. Expand
Gastric Carcinoids and Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: Pathogenesis, Pathology, and Behavior
TLDR
It was concluded that correct clinicopathologic subtyping may predict the clinical behavior of gastric endocrine tumors. Expand
Synchronous Gastric Carcinoid and Gastric Adenocarcinoma with Plummer-Vinson Syndrome: A Case Report and Literature Review
TLDR
This is an unusual case of synchronous gastric carcinoid and adenocarcinoma on the background of chronic atrophic gastritis with associated postcricoid oesophageal web, with evidence of chronic least squares gastritis and intestinal metaplasia. Expand

Gastric carcinoid tumors, endocrine cell hyperplasia, and associated intestinal metaplasia. Histologic, histochemical, and immunohistochemical findings
TLDR
Endocrine cell hyperplasia was identified in the gastric mucosa of eight of 11 patients, including all cases with pernicious anemia, and there is a histogenetic link between atrophic gastritis and some cases of gastric carcinoid tumor. Expand
Gastric Endocrine Cell Hyperplasia and Carcinoid Tumors in Atrophic Gastritis Type A
TLDR
The observation that endocrine cell nodules comprised a similar mixture of endocrine cells, sometimes communicating with glands of pseudopyloric metaplasia and proving to be reversible in one case, provides evidence that these nodules are hyperplastic, but finally may lead to gastric carcinoid tumors in AGA. Expand
Gastric carcinoids and their precursor lesions. A histologic and immunohistochemical study of 23 cases
TLDR
A histologic and immunohistochemical study was carried out in 23 unselected nonantral gastric carcinoids and their precursor lesions and the results are of relevance for tumor pathogenesis and may provide the rationale for a less aggressive therapeutic approach in the patients. Expand
Gastric carcinoids and related endocrine growths.
TLDR
A series of 30 gastric endocrine tumours has been revised in the light of available available cytologic and clinicopathologic information, and hypergastrinaemia is among causative agents of argyrophil ECL cell hyperplasias and, possibly, of tumours of the oxynticopeptic mucosa. Expand
The syndrome of gastric argyrophil carcinoid tumors and nonantral gastric atrophy.
TLDR
The results suggest that nonantral gastric atrophy predisposes to Gastric carcinoid as well as to gastric carcinoma. Expand
Histopathology of gastric carcinoids: a survey of 42 cases
TLDR
It is suggested that gastric carcinoids with a type D morphology or a minority cell population of argyrophil cells are dedifferentiated carcinoids which are biologically nearer to gastric canceromas. Expand
Antrectomy for multicentric, argyrophil gastric carcinoids: a preliminary report.
TLDR
Evaluation with upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and biopsy examination 4 to 6 months after antrectomy showed complete regression of disease in one patient and residual neoplasm in one patients, despite normal serum gastrin levels. Expand
Gastric Carcinoid Associated with the Syndrome of Hypergastrinemic Atrophic Gastritis: A Prospective Analysis of 11 Cases
TLDR
A series of 11 patients with solitary or multicentric carcinoid tumors with characteristic endoscopic features are reported, finding that the prevalence of gastric carcinoid in fundic atrophic gastritis is probably greater than previously recognized. Expand
Multicentric gastric carcinoids complicating pernicious anemia. Origin from the metaplastic endocrine cell population.
TLDR
Findings in three cases of multicentric carcinoid tumors of the stomach in patients with long-standing pernicious anemia and severe atrophic gastritis suggest an alternative possibility: the tumors may derive from small-intestinal-type metaplastic endocrine cells within the atrophic mucosa, rather than the hypertrophic native endocrine cell population. Expand
Multiple carcinoids and endocrine cell micronests in type a gastritis. Their morphology, histogenesis, and natural history
TLDR
It is suggested that the development of both the ECM and the carcinoids is highly related to the atrophic change of the fundic mucosa and a trophic action of subsequently raised serum gastrin in type A gastritis and that the both lesions arise from the pseudopyloric glands or atrophic fundic glands.
