Methods: This was a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected sporadic p-NET cases. The final histological diagnosis was achieved on a post-surgical specimen.
Chromogranin A CgA levels were measured. Results: A total of 80 patients mean age: 58 ± neuroendocrine cancer pancreas and liver The diameter of functioning was significantly lower neuroendocrine cancer pancreas and liver that of non-functioning p-NETs Overall, the CT study detected the lesion in 51 CT overlooked the pancreatic lesion more frequently in patients with functioning than non-functioning p-NETs EUS allowed a more precise pre-operative tumor measurement, with an overall incorrect dimension in only 9 Conclusions: Data of this large case series would suggest that the EUS should be included in the diagnostic work-up in all patients with a suspected p-NET, even when the CT study was neuroendocrine cancer pancreas and liver for a primary lesion in the pancreas.
