carcinoid syndrome (CS), consisting of facial flushing, diarrhoea and occasionally bronchospasm ( 1 ). Primary NETs within the ovaries are uncommon but can also cause CS and CHD by direct release of bioactive amines into the inferior vena cava or renal vein

Introduction Small-bowel neuroendocrine tumours (SB-NETs) are rare secreting neoplasms. Hormones (serotonin, histamine, bradykinin, prostaglandins and chromogranin-A) released into the systemic circulation can lead to a carcinoid syndrome (CS

Introduction Neuroendocrine tumors of the lungs (LNET) represent approximately 30% of all NET ( 1 , 2 ) and account for 1–2% of all lung tumors. Lung NETs are classified into typical carcinoid (TC, low-grade tumors) and atypical carcinoid (AC

Introduction Pulmonary carcinoid (PC) tumors are low- and intermediate-grade neoplasms that are subdivided into typical carcinoid (TC) and atypical carcinoid (AC) based on the mitotic count and presence of necrosis ( 1 ). PCs belong to

with metastatic small-intestinal NETs (SI-NETs), the carcinoid syndrome is common, which is characterised by diarrhoea, episodic flushing, bronchospasm and often carcinoid heart disease leading to right valvular dysfunction ( 4 ). Patients with non

IMPK mutation in a single small bowel carcinoid family ( 81 ) remains to be defined. In addition, the clinical usefulness of chemical-based DNA modifications e.g., methylation, requires elucidation. Alternatives to DNA-based molecular strategies
