Discusses the benefits of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and laparoscopic ultrasonography used to locate and remove neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas. Possibility that both methods can fail to locate tumor sites; Rate of tumor identification with MRI; Relevance of precise pre- and intraoperative location of neuroendocrine tumor for surgical treatment.

    Background. Primary lymph nodes gastrinomas are rare and difficult to diagnose not only because of their small size, but also because modern imaging techniques have limitations in detecting duodenal and/or adjacent lymph nodes gastrinomas. Endoscopic ultrasonography is particularly useful in the...

    Insulinoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas and is the most common cause of endogenous hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. Although 90% of insulinomas are benign tumors, recurrent episodes of hypoglycemia may lead to life-threatening consequences. Since surgery is the only curative...
