BMJ Case Rep. 2014 Aug 22:2014:bcr2014204290. doi: 10.1136/bcr-2014-204290.


We present the case of a 55-year-old Caucasian man presenting with polyarthritis, weight loss and multiple tender cutaneous nodules. Abnormal liver function tests prompted imaging of the liver which demonstrated liver metastases. Biopsy of the liver lesions confirmed the diagnosis of metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma.
