endocrine tumors have been conducted (with the exception of thyroid tumors), although there are several indications pointing towards a possible role of BRAF in this type of tumor also. First, like melanomas ( Dupin & Le Douarin 2003 ), a subset of endocrine

Introduction Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) are uncommon neoplasms with an incidence of <1 per 100 000 person-years in population studies ( Moldow & Connelly 1968 , Buchanan et al . 1986 , Eriksson et al . 1989 , Watson et al . 1989

Introduction Gastro-entero-pancreatic endocrine tumors (GEP ETs) are rare neoplasms, with 1–4 cases per 100 000 people per year ( Quaedvlieg et al. 2001 , Modlin et al. 2003 , Lepage et al. 2004 , Taal & Visser 2004

Introduction The molecular pathogenesis of the sporadic pancreatic endocrine tumors (PET) is still poorly understood ( Gumbs et al . 2002 ). Mutations in the MEN1 gene are the most common finding in hereditary PET ( Chandrasekharappa et al
