Case Study
We present here familial occurrence of two patients with gastric carcinoid. Both patients, a sister and older sister, had type A chronic atrophic gastritis with hypergastrinemia. This is the first case report of familial occurrence of gastric carcinoid associated with type A chronic atrophic gastritis in the world literature. The possible mechanism of familial occurrence in the patients is discussed.
