Survival of Patients with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs) in a Single Institute in North Africa over the Last 16 Years


Introduction: Because of the low incidence, nonspecific symptoms at presentation, lack of awareness, and non-uniform classifications, gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) remains a poorly understood disease, and delayed diagnosis is common among patients with GEP-NETs.

Aim(s): The aim of our study was to determine survival characteristic of patients with GEP-NETs in Tunisia.

Materials and methods: Data on all patients diagnosed with GEP-NET at the medical oncology department of Salah Azaiez Institute in Tunisia between January 2002 and January 2019 were collected retrospectively. Overall survival (OS) were evaluated independently of tumors stage.
