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

Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors most frequently harbor alterations in CDKN1B, BCOR, POLQ, MEN1, and EP300 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumor

BCOR Mutation, CDKN1fs, POLQ Mutation, SETD2 Mutation, and CDKN1B Mutation are the most common alterations in small intestinal neuroendocrine tumor [2].
