ARREDONDO BRUCE, Alfredo; AMORES CARRATE, Jacqueline e REYES OLIVA, Roberto. The acid hypersecretion in the medical practice: a challenge to the general practitioner. AMC [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.4, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1025-0255.
Gastric acid hypersecretion is seen in several disorders, including duodenal ulcers, Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome (ZES), Helicobacter pylori-associated gastritis, gastric outlet obstruction, short gut syndrome, antral exclusion, gastric G-cell hyperfunction, systemic mastocytosis, basophilic leukemia, gastric carcinoids with carcinoid syndrome, and non-gastrin producing pancreatic tumors. Most incidences of gastric acid hypersecretion are idiopathic. As gastric acid secretion is not routinely measured, the diagnosis of a gastric acid hypersecretory state can often be missed in many cases.
