Neuroendocrine Tumors in the Chilean Population


Introduction: In recent years, neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) have shown a significant raise in prevalence and incidence. However this observation needs to be accurately quantified using reliable epidemiological databases.

Aim(s): To create a national registry of Chilean NET patients.

Materials and methods: We elaborated a prospective, non-interventional, population-based, multi-institutional, collaborative database of NETs in Chile. Data were collected from medical records between 2015-2017.
