The details of the comparatively new and, indeed, bizarre clinical entity of argentaffinoma, pulmonary stenosis and cutaneous flush are not well documented. Patients with this triad present a confusing picture, since the findings appear at present to be completely unrelated. Until recently the problems in diagnosis have, with few exceptions, continued to necropsy. Some evidence has been accumulated which suggests very strongly that the intestinal disease and cutaneous signs are related. The heart disease is not always overt and, when found to be a pulmonary stenosis, serves to link the three parts of this triad into a well defined disease.
