Incidental Histological Diagnosis of Small Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Are We Underestimating Their Incidence? Abstract #2278

Introduction: The annual incidence of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PanNET) has been estimated to be around 0.8/100,000 inhabitants.
Aim(s): To determine the frequency of incidental histological diagnosis of PanNET in pancreatic specimen evaluation for other resected neoplasms.
Materials and methods: One thousand and twenty three histopathological examinations of pancreatic specimens performed by three different pathologists in 3 high-volume centers in Italy were retrospectively reviewed. Preoperative evaluations and surgical procedures were performed directly or under the supervision of a single surgeon. All the cases with a main pathological diagnosis of PanNET were excluded.

#2200 Tumor Size Correlates with Grading in Nonfunctioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors and Is Not Age-Dependent
Introduction: Tumor growth and Ki67 value increase are associated with aggressiveness in nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NF-PanNET), but their natural history is largely unknown. It is unknown if the evolution of NF-PanNET is time-dependant.
