Gastrinomas are neuroendocrine tumors usually located in the duodenum and pancreas, in the context of a Multiple Endocrine Neoplasm and forming a Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. The location of this type of lymph node tumor is extremely unusual and its early diagnosis constitutes a real challenge to be able to establish an adequate treatment and manage the complications that these entail. We present the case of a 64-year-old male patient with a lymph node gastrinoma and whose surgical removal resulted in the immediate remission of the patient's symptoms.
