ABSTRACT


Introduction: Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF-1, Recklinghausen disease) is the most common hereditary multitumor syndrome with an incidence at birth of approximately 1/3000. In type 1 neurofibromatosis, gastrointestinal tumors are relatively infrequent and generally correspond with a hyperplasia of neural cells in the myenteric and submucosal plexus, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) and periampullary neuro endocrine tumors. However, the association of GIST, the neuro endocrine tumor of ampulla of Vater and neurofibromatosis is rare.

Case Report: The case reports a 66-year-old woman without a familial history of neurofibromatosis diagnosed with neuro endocrine tumor of ampulla and GIST of the duodenum. She underwent cephalic duodeno pancreatectomy. A working diagnosis of NF-1 was made and the patient was referred to genetic counseling.

Conclusion: The case clearly points out the important value of gastrointestinal findings in identifying undiagnosed NF-1.

Keywords: Gastrointestinal stromal tumor, Neurofibromatosis Type 1, Neuroendocrine tumor
