Abstract

Gastric endocrine tumors are classified as well differentiated and poorly differentiated. The large majority of well differentiated endocrine tumors are argyrophil enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cell tumors and can be subdivided in Type 1, associated with chronic atrophic gastritis, Type 2 associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia 1 and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (MEN1-ZES) and Type 3, sporadic, or not associated to specific gastric pathology. Type 1 and 2 tumors are mostly benign in behaviour, while Type 3 tumors are low grade malignant carcinomas. The poorly differentiated endocrine tumors of the stomach are highly malignant and aggressive carcinomas.
