    Somatostatin has been shown to be effective in the management of the dumping syndrome and there have been reports of the effective use of long acting somatostatin analogue in the management of this condition. However, there have been few reports of the prolonged use of a somatostatin analogue in the late dumping syndrome. We describe a patient in whom this management provided good long term symptomatic relief which was confirmed biochemically.
