Abstract

Technetium-99m sestamibi is known to localize in primary malignant and metastatic tumors. Specifically, brain, breast, thyroid, parathyroid, lung, and kidney tumors have been imaged. The Verner Morrison syndrome, which is caused by excessive vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), consists of watery diarrhea, hypokalemia, and achlorhydria. This condition is rarely associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia. The authors present a case of multiple endocrine neoplasia type I with visualization of a pancreatic VIPoma and parathyroid adenoma with Tc-99m MIBI.
