Title:
Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Dichotomy, Origin and Classifications.

Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are heterogeneous tumors with a common phenotype. There are two fundamentally different groups of NENs: well-differentiated, low-proliferating NENs, called neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) or carcinoids, and poorly differentiated, highly proliferating NENs, called small- or large-cell neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs).
