Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract (NETs of GIT) are rare neoplasms frequently associated with synchronous or metachronous second primary malignancy (SPM). This phenomenon can be a result of an increasing incidence of NETs in patients who are examined for another primary malignancy. However, other theories suppose genetic predispositions or growth impact of different neuroendocrine peptides produced by NET.
