Abstract

Metastatic neuroendocrine tumors of childhood are extremely rare, and as such present diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Here, we report a case of gastrinoma with extensive hepatic metastases in a pediatric patient with Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome who underwent orthotopic liver transplant followed by cytotoxic chemotherapy, somatostatin analog therapy, and immune modulation.
