Progression of Mesenteric Metastasis in Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors


Introduction: A metastatic mesenteric mass is a hallmark of small intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (SI-NETs). However, little is known about the development of a SI-NET associated mesenteric mass over time.

Aim(s): The objective of this study was to gain insight in the evolution of mesenteric metastasis and find predictors for progression of mesenteric disease.

Materials and methods: Retrospectively, 530 patients with proven SI-NET and ≥2 available CT-scans were assessed for clinical characteristics at diagnosis and presence and growth of mesenteric mass on every consecutive CT-scan.
