To ­date, malig­nant duod­en­al ­tumours ­have ­remained ­obscure sub­ject-mat­ter ­although ­they ­were ­first ­described in the eight­eenth cen­tu­ry. Recent devel­op­ment in tech­nol­o­gy and in ana­tom­o­his­top­a­thol­o­gy ­makes it nec­es­sary to ­review the duod­en­al ­tumours clas­sifi­ca­tion, espe­cial­ly in rela­tion to the pro­gres­sive devel­op­ment of stro­mal and neu­ro­en­do­crine ­forms. In the lit­er­a­ture, pre­cise epi­dem­i­olog­i­cal ­data are not report­ed and, as ­regards ­some duod­en­al ­tumours, sim­ply ­do not ­exist. Series are gen­er­al­ly ­either sur­gi­cal, ana­tom­o­path­o­log­i­cal or gas­troen­ter­o­log­i­cal. Hospital cen­tres ­need to estab­lish a col­lab­o­ra­tion ­which gath­ers new ­observed cas­es to ­avoid the dis­per­sion of ­case ­series. Thus, a European Register ­will be estab­lished to ­report the ­real inci­dence by ana­lyz­ing the spe­cif­ic dif­fe­ren­tial ele­ments.
