The goal of this study was to provide information of prognostic value for gastric endocrine tumors. A total of 205 gastric endocrine tumors have been studied: 193 well differentiated tumors [2 gastrin cell tumors, 191 enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cell tumors] and 12 poorly differentiated carcinomas. Subtyping of ECL cell tumors (carcinoids) resulted in 152 associated with chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG) (type 1); 12 associated with hypertrophic gastropathy (HG) due to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome… CONTINUE READING
