Abstract

Neuroendocrine neoplasm is an epithelial neoplasm with predominant neuroendocrine differentiation that can arise from many organs in the body. We reported a rare case of gastric neuroendocrine carcinoma which accounts for less than 1% of all gastric tumours that is associated with poor prognosis. The recognition of this rare tumour in early stage is challenging and high suspicious into it might bring to early detection and so forth might improve the prognostication.
