Endoscopic Ultrasound Appearance of Pancreatic Serotonin-Staining Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Case Series Abstract #1639

Introduction: The pancreatic localization of serotonin-staining neuroendocrine neoplasms (serotoninomas) is extremely rare. Less than 350 cases have been reported in the world literature.
Aim(s): To describe a small series of 8 pancreatic serotoninomas in order to analyze the endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) appearance of this rare type of pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm (pNEN).
Materials and methods: Between 2010 and 2016, all consecutive patients with histologically proven pancreatic serotoninoma who had undergone EUS were enrolled
