Captación de serotonina

Toggle: English / Spanish

El síndrome carcinoide es el patrón de síntomas que típicamente presentan las personas con tumores carcinoides. Estos síntomas incluyen rubor facial intenso, diarrea y, ocasionalmente, sibilancia. Puede haber daño en un tipo específico de válvula cardíaca, así como la presencia de otros problemas cardíacos. Los tumores carcinoides segregan una excesiva cantidad de la hormona serotonina. La cirugía para remover por completo el tejido del tumor es el tratamiento ideal. Ésta puede tener como resultado la curación permanente si se logra extraer la totalidad del tumor.
