Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC), of the digestive tract are rare and aggressive tumours. In localised disease, the treatment is surgery, followed by administration of adjuvant chemotherapy combining etoposide and platinum salts, justified by the high risk of secondary metastasis. No clinical study has proven the benefit of chemotherapy, and recommendations are based on expert consensus.
