Gastrin-secreting tumours which usually arise in the pancreas can cause this rare condition, characterised by severe and persistently recurrent peptic ulcers. It is due to the production of large acidic materials in the stomach, which leads to ulceration. The high levels of acid in the digestive organs also often cause diarrhoea.
The tumours are slow growing, but are often cancerous. Where possibly, surgery is used for removal, and proton pump inhibitor drugs are given to treat the ulcers. the body must also be brought into a cleased state to stop these this disease reoccurring.
