Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNETs) are a heterogeneous group of rare pancreatic neoplasms often diagnosed with distant metastases, which are associated with significantly poorer prognosis. Recurrent somatic mutations, chromosomal aberrations and gene expression signatures in PNETs have been described, but the clinical significance of these molecular changes is still poorly understood, and the clinical outcomes of PNET patients remain highly variable.
