Primary hepatic neuroendocrine carcinoma with colon adenoma: A case report with literature review.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2022 Jun 10;95:107176. Epub 2022 May 10.

Department of General Surgery, The First Hospital of Jiaxing (The First Affiliated Hospital of Jiaxing University), Jiaxing, Zhejiang 314001, PR China.

Introduction And Importance: Primary hepatic neuroendocrine tumors (PHNETs) are extremely rare, and the clinical symptoms, test results, and imaging characteristics are nonspecific in most patients; thus, it is difficult to differentiate from other liver masses before surgery. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry are the main basis for the diagnosis. PHNETs and colon tumors co-occur in a patient and are non-homologous, as reported in the English-language literature for the first time. Read More
