Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of pancreas (PNET) are classified as functional or nonfunctional (NF) based on presence or absence of clinical syndrome associated with hormone over secretion. NF-PNETs do, however, often produce low levels of inactive hormones (pancreatic polypeptide, calcitonin or neurotensin) which do not cause any symptoms.
