    Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas are rare neoplasms arising predominantly from the pancreatic islets of Langerhans and are thus known as islet cell tumors. More than the half of all neuroendocrine tumors are called functioning islet cell tumors because they secrete one or more biologically...

    We report a case of a primary carcinoid tumor arising in the mesentery of the small bowel of a 52-year-old man. The mesenteric mass in this patient was first identified as an incidental finding on CT imaging for bilateral nephrolithiasis. As a result of the abnormal findings, follow-up...

    Neuroendocrine tumor metastases to the liver can mimic primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) on imaging, cytology, and core biopsy. We present a case study along with the literature review of a patient who presented as a solitary liver mass mimicking HCC and subsequently underwent a partial...

    Preoperative localization of gastrinomas, especially of extrapancreatic origin, remains a challenge to the radiologist. Most patients with extrapancreatic gastrinomas undergo surgery without preoperative identification of the primary tumor. The appropriate imaging modality to localize...
