Abstract

The endocrine tumors of the pancreas and the gastrointestinal tract may be of difficult interpretation. The recent histopathological classification of the endocrine tumors by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) introduced new criteria for their interpretation, classification and diagnosis. The present paper aims at defining simple guidelines for the practical, routine approach to the histopathological diagnosis of the endocrine tumors of the digestive system according to the new W.H.O. criteria.
