    Abstract

    Neuroendocrine tumors are slowly growing tumors which originate from neuroendocrine cells. These tumors can secrete several products. In case of overproduction of serotonin, symptoms such as flushing, diarrhea and right-sided heart disease can occur. Next to serotonin, other well known products are e.g. catecholamines.
