NCI Definition: A well differentiated, low or intermediate grade tumor with neuroendocrine differentiation that arises from the colon or rectum. [1]

Colorectal neuroendocrine tumors most frequently harbor alterations in SF3B1, FLT4, USP9X, SETD2, and ROS1 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Colorectal Neuroendocrine Tumor

SF3B1 Mutation, FLT4 Mutation, SETD2 Mutation, ROS1 Mutation, and NOTCH1 Mutation are the most common alterations in colorectal neuroendocrine tumor [2].
