"Persian Gulf syndrome" refers to a group of clinical findings
found in military personnel who served in the Persian Gulf
War. The most commonly reported symptoms include chronic
fatigue, headache, and neurologic disorders. Recently, new
information has linked Whipple's disease and Ki-1 anaplastic
large cell lymphoma to this syndrome. Presented here is an
unusual case of multiple giant cell tumors of the hand in a
patient with documented Persian Gulf syndrome. The
epidemiologic significance between these two entities is
unclear, because this is a single reported case. However, the
practical message is clear. Physicians must meticulously
evaluate patients who are veterans of the Persian Gulf
conflict to further our understanding and confirm the
existence of this syndrome.
