Abstract

Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pancreatic NETs) are rare, low- to intermediate-grade neoplasms thought to arise from the pancreatic islets. Recent advances in pathology and our understanding of the biological behavior of this group of tumors has resulted in changes in their nomenclature and how we treat them. This review puts into perspective our current understanding of pancreatic NETs in terms of their incidence, pathology, and management.
