RESUMO

OS tumores neuroendócrinos (TNE) já foram considerados raridades. Atualmente, através de novas técnicas para seu reconhecimento, tem-se identificado um número crescente destas neoplasias, sendo possível estratificá-las em subgrupos, expandindo o espectro dos neoplasmas neuroendócrinos e sua importância na prática cirúrgica atual. A imunocitoquímica, a dosagem de peptídeos e os modernos métodos de imagem proporcionam informações imprescindíveis para um diagnóstico acurado e o tratamento adequado. Este artigo tem por objetivo revisar aspectos referentes aos tumores neuroendócrinos do trato gastrointestinal relativos à história, fisiopatologia, classificação atualizada, diagnóstico e tratamento.

Unitermos: Tumores neuroendócrinos; Trato gastrointestinal; Imunocitoquírnica; Cintilografia.


ABSTRACT

Neuroendocrine tumors were previously considered rarieties. However with the new techniques for its recognition, they have been in a identified growing number of cases, making it possible to stratify them in subgroups. The imunocitochemistry peptide dosage and modern imaging techniques provide essential informations from acurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. The objective of this review is to discuss the aspects of neuroendocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract.

Key words: Neuroendocrine tumors; Gastrointestinal tract; lmunocitochemistry; Cintilography.
