Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors - PNETs

Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are rare tumors of pancreatic islet cells. PNETs account for <5% of all pancreatic tumors. The choice of tumor marker depends on clinical presentation, but may include glucose or insulin (for insulinoma), gastrin or gastrin pH (for gastrinoma), and glucose or glucagon (for glucagonoma).
