The occurrence of intractable peptic ulceration with a non-B-cell pancreatic adenoma in man (Zollinger and Ellison, 1955) has been associated in many cases with diarrhoea. In a few cases steatorrhoea has been reported to be present. It seems probable that this syndrome is due to elaboration of a gastrin-like material by the tumour capable of producing gross gastric hypersecretion (Gregory, Tracy, French and Sircus, 1960). In an attempt to elucidate the mechanism behind the diarrhoea and steatorrhoea we have observed the effect in dogs of artificial gastric hypersecretion on the absorption of fat.
