The ­authors ­take ­the ­case of a neu­ro­en­do­crine ­tumour of ­the ­cecum as ­the start­ing ­point ­for an anal­y­sis of ­the ana­tom­o­path­o­log­i­cal ­and diag­nos­tic-ther­a­peu­tic ­aspects of ­these neo­plasms. Furthermore, ­the ­authors under­line ­that neu­ro­en­do­crine ­tumours (­NET) of ­the ­colon rep­re­sent an extreme­ly ­rare nos­o­log­i­cal ­entity ­and ­that ­they ­are het­er­o­ge­ne­ous ­from a clin­i­cal ­and bio­chem­i­cal ­point of ­view, ­thus mak­ing a reli­able pre­op­er­a­tive diag­no­sis a prob­lem ­that is ­still dif­fi­cult to ­resolve ­today.
