However, it is not generally appreciated that four of the commonly used tests of gastric acid secretion may not suggest the correct diagnosis. Normal values have been reported for basal acid secretion, histamine-stimulated acid secretion, the ratio of basal/stimulated acid secretion, and 12-hr overnight acid secretion in patients with ulcerogenic tumor of the pancreas (2, 3). We have studied gastric secretion in five patients with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome and in 300 other
