The prediction of the behavior of pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) is a difficult exercise. CK19, a marker of pancreatic ductal cells, does not stain normal islet cells. Our aim was to evaluate the prognostic value of traditional parameters, including the Capella classification, as well as CK19. We evaluated the clinicopathologic features of 101 curatively resected PETs. The influence on survival of size, functional status of tumor, growth pattern, nuclear grade, mitoses (>2/10 HPF), vascular… CONTINUE READING
