One rare case of the endocrine tumour has been operated at RG Stone And Super Speciality Hospital on 12-May-2010 by Dr. HS Jolly. An old female, Karamjeet Kaur, aged 60 yrs, r/o distt. Jallandhar came to the hospital on 10-May-2010 with the complaint of one big mass in the upper abdomen. She was suffering from this disease for three years and had constant distress in the abdomen with heaviness after meals along with other digestion troubles. Upon clinical examination and investigation, she found to have one tumour arising from the head of the pancreas. After full preparation she was operated upon by Dr. HS Jolly, Chief Laparoscopic & Endoscopic Surgeon at RG Stone & Super Speciality Hospital.
After opening the abdomen, one mass with big blood vessels surrounding vital structures was found. Tumour of more than 12 cm. X 12 cm. in dimension removed carefully without any damage to surrounding structures.
The patient recovered well after such marathon surgery and has been discharged in a healthy condition. At the time of discharge, she was not feeling any distress and any other related problems.
Microscopic examination of tumour suggested it as an endocrine tumour from the pancreatic head region and such type of tumour with that big dimension is rare to be found in the medical literature.
