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.
