Abstract

Definite proof of the recent proposal that the enterochromaffine cell system of the gastrointestinal tract and the cells of the amine and amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation series have a common origin within the neural crest is not available at present. In support of this theory a case of neurofibromatosis von Recklinghausen Recklinghausen with intestinal involvement and seemingly direct transition of one of the lesions into a carcinoid is presented. Concomitant rise in plasma catecholamines and immunoreactive serum parathyroid hormone levels indicated the possible presence of a multiple endocrine adenomatosis syndrome.
