Introduction: Ampullary neuroendocrine tumors are very rare. They account less than 1% of neuroendocrine gastrointestinal tumor. It is often difficult to establish a final diagnosis because of their resemblance with other adenocarcinomas of this origin.
Aim(s): We aim to investigate neuroendocrine tumors of the ampulla. We also aim to find the treatment modalities that offer good prognosis for these tumors located in ampulla.
Materials and methods: A retrospective study was done in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and 20 patients were included in the study. Inclusion criteria was made and patients with periampullary neoplasm were identified. Patient’s underwent ERCP. and endoscopic biopsy was done in 22% and rest of the 8% was selected for pancreaticoduodenectomy.
