Neuroendocrine neoplasms are a very heterogeneous group of tumors. It comprises two main categories: neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) that are well or moderately differentiated and neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) that are poorly differentiated. Their clinical presentation, their prognosis and their treatment are very different. Hormonal secretion may be associated with some tumors, such as carcinoid syndrome of small intestine NETs or hypoglycemia and Zollinger Ellison syndrome of duodeno-pancreatic NETs corresponding to insulinoma and gastrinoma respectively. We will detail in this review all the elements important to their care.
