Introduction: The annual incidence of GEP-NETs in China is still unclear. All histopathology and cytopathology reports have yet to be collected in a national archive. No national or regional survey on GEP-NETs has been approved. West China Hospital (WCH), a university hospital located in Chengdu City with a population of 14 million, has established a series of databases in recent years.
Aim(s): To estimate the incidence of GEP-NETs in Chengdu with the database of WCH and population-based data from Chengdu during 2006 – 2010.
Materials and methods: The annual number of patients in WCH was between 25.6% and 28% of those diagnosed with GEP-NETs in Chengdu during the past five years. GEP-NETs incidence in Chengdu was yielded by the number of annual new patients with GEP-NETs in WCH divided by the 25.6% - 28% population of Chengdu.
