Introduction: The establishment of a neuroendocrine registry is extremely hard in developing countries. Many patients miss follow-up after surgical procedures and many die in different hospitals with a distinct national security health system number. As in any developing country, Brazil has a large movement of people to urban areas, making the tracking of former addresses impossible for patients who were treated some years prior. Therefore, it is more feasible to evaluate a demographic distribution of neuroendocrine tumors by topography or histological subtype, but the analysis of clinical events, such as progression-free survival, disease-free survival, time to progression or overall survival, is compromised.
