Introduction: The risk to develop gastro-intestinal malignancies is higher in patients affected by inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Apart from colo-rectal cancer, related to a long standing inflammation, there is a growing evidence of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in these patients and a correlation between these two diseases has been postulated. We report four cases of NETs in IBD.

Introduction: A multi-institutional health network (nine hospitals) was set up in the Belgian Antwerp-Waasland region for the multidisciplinary care of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (GEP-NET) patients, called “NETwerk”. Local multidisciplinary teams refer all GEP-NET patients to be discussed among specialists, experienced in NET diagnostics and treatment, at a NET specific multidisciplinary tumorboard (MDT).
