Abstract

Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) are a group of rare tumours, arising from cells of the neuroendocrine system. To this group belong midgut carcinoid tumours originating from the enterochromaffin cells of the bowel and phaeochromocytomas arising from chromaffin cells in the medulla of the adrenal gland and paraganglia. The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the course and follow-up of patients with NETs focussing on the midgut carcinoid tumours and phaeochromocytomas.
