Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The complex domain of neuroendocrine neoplasia, including endocrine tumors with neuroendocrine components, represents one of the most dynamic multidisciplinary topics that are studied today. Great progress has recently been made with new prognostic markers and therapies that are proving their utility in different applications, from clinical presentation to personalized therapeutic approaches. A stratified perspective includes a large panel of conditions underlying neuroendocrine traits that vary from very rare entities to more frequent pathologies, such as gastro-pancreatic-intestinal neuroendocrine neoplasms, depending on the tumors’ sites and profiles in both pediatric and adult populations. In addition, early prognostic markers might be useful for prompt diagnoses in subjects with hereditary conditions or patients harboring pathogenic variants of different genes.
