The occurrence of neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas is rare, representing 1-5% of pancreatic cancers, and it is estimated that its incidence does not exceed 5 to one million. The tumors considered nonfunctioning (15-32% of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors) are not associated with any syndrome, and are usually incidental. They have a slight predominance in males, and are more frequent in the 6th decade of life. Nonfunctioning tumors of islet cells are virtually all malignant tumors, and the treatment consists of surgical resection.
