Introduction: The secretion of urinary 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid (u5-HIAA) by non-functioning PNETs (NF-PNET) has rarely been reported, and the data on the association between u5-HIAA levels and disease burden is scant.
Aim(s): To assess u5-HIAA levels in patients with NF-PNETs.
Materials and methods: A retrospective analysis of a prospective study, including patients with gastro-entero-pancreatic NET, with biochemical biomarkers and imaging follow-up. Tumor burden was determined by measuring 68Ga-DOTATATE-avid tumor volume using a SUVmax threshold.
