Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours versus Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma: Presentation in Tunisian Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are divided into two groups on the basis of clinical behaviour, histology, and proliferation rate: well differentiated (low grade to intermediate grade) neuroendocrine tumors and poorly differentiated (high grade) neuroendocrine carcinoma.
Aim(s): The aim of our study was to compare disease characteristic between gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine tumors (NET) and GEP neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) in Tunisian patients.
Materials and methods: We retrospectively collected data on all patients diagnosed with GEP-NENs from 2002 to 2018. Patients’ demographics and disease characteristics were analysed using Ki2 test, p<0.05 was considered significant.
