Pancreatic insufficiency in Toriello-Carey syndrome: report of a second patient.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Toriello-Carey syndrome is characterized by multiple congenital anomalies. Pancreatic insufficiency is suspected when patients present with poor weight gain, diarrhea, or maldigestion. The diagnosis is confirmed by low stool elastase and pancreatic stimulation testing. To our knowledge, only one patient with Toriello-Carey syndrome has been reported to have pancreatic insufficiency. We report on a second patient with Toriello-Carey syndrome and pancreatic insufficiency, and describe the management of pancreatic insufficiency in patients with this syndrome.
