Long-Term Prognosis of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors in Von Hippel-Lindau Disease


Introduction: Management of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNET) associated with von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is challenging because of their malignant potential and poorly predictable prognosis.

Aim(s): To compare long-term outcome of resected VHL-PNET and sporadic PNET.

Materials and methods: All VHL patients (n=23) operated on for PNET in our centre were reviewed. Characteristics and recurrence-free survival (RFS) were compared to that of patients operated on for a sporadic PNET, matched for tumor size, stage and proliferation index.
