Abstract

A 42-year-old white woman was seen by her physician because of somatic complaints of the neck and right arm discomfort, difficulty in swallowing, and "heartburn." Findings of the workup led to the diagnosis of metastatic ossified gastric carcinoid. Review of the literature suggests that this is the third report of ossified gastric carcinoid. However, this is the only case in which such a tumor was associated with hypergastrinemia, gastric (antiparietal cell), and thyroid (antimicrosomal) autoantibodies.
