Somatostatin is a peptide hormone widely distributed throughout the body and is an important regulator of endocrine and nervous system function. Somatostatin can also be found in gastrointestinal and bronchopulmonary endocrine cells, thymic endocrine cells, and thyroid C-cells. Anti-somatostatin is a useful marker of D-cells of pancreatic islets.1,2 It recognizes somatostatin-containing cells in pancreatic tumors, islet cell hyperplasia, and islet cells originating in pancreatic ductules.3-6
