Introduction: Glucagon cell adenomatosis (GCA) was recently recognized by us as a multifocal neoplastic disease of the endocrine pancreas unrelated to MEN-1. Multiple micro- and a few macrotumors are found on the background of a hyperplasia of glucagon cells. The disease may cause unspecific abdominal symptoms and only rarely a glucagonoma syndrome. Recently a mutation in the glucagon receptor (GCGR) gene was described in one GCA

Introduction: High-grade pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (pNENs) constitute a heterogeneous group of malignant neoplasms, encompassing neuroendocrine tumors (NET) G3 and carcinomas (NEC). Due to poor data on NET G3 tumors no standard therapy in metastatic disease could be established so far. Tumor genome sequencing might help to better profile NET G3 tumors and could provide novel opportunities for individualized and thereby successful patient specific treatments.
