VIPomas, a Rare Entity Abstract #1535

Introduction: VIP secreting pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors(pNETs) are rare and controlled studies are lacking.
Aim(s): To assess their prevalence and response to treatment. We performed a retrospective study using the case notes of a tertiary care center.
Materials and methods: Records from 172 patients with pNETs were reviewed for the presence of clinical, biochemical and histopathological evidence of a VIPoma.

Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) in patients with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome type 1 (MEN 1) are frequently multiple and occur with an incidence that varies from 30-80% in different series. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and techniques such as endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) are useful tools for tumor localization, size assessment and follow-up.
