Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) represent only 1% of all pancreatic neoplasms by incidence, but 10% by prevalence. Family history of cancer is the only established risk factor so far. The impact of germline genetic variability on PNET risk is poorly understood.

Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (SI-NETs) represent a heterogenous group of tumours. The molecular mechanisms which contribute to progression of SI-NETs are poorly elucidated. They are considered to be molecularly distinct from neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs), which share oncogenic pathways with adenocarcinomas.
