Human gastric neuroendocrine neoplasia: Current pathologic status

Guido Rindi, Enrico Solcia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter provides an overview of nonneoplastic (hyperplasia and dysplasia) and neoplastic endocrine cell lesions of the stomach [the carcinoid, or well-differentiated (neuro)endocrine tumor/carcinoma, and the poorly differentiated endocrine carcinoma, (PDEC)]. The normal endocrine cell counterparts are also briefly described. The adjective " neuroendocrine" is widely used for this type of tumor and is considered a synonym of "endocrine," as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) which also maintains the traditional term "carcinoid." All of these various tumor-connoting definitions are used synonymously throughout this chapter.
