Neuroendocrine carcinomas of the gallbladder: Lessons learnt from cases at opposite ends of the spectrum.
Neuroendocrine tumors are the rarest tumors of gallbladder. The most aggressive variant is neuroendocrine carcinoma which represents about 0.5% of all gallbladder carcinomas and 0.2% of all neuroendocrine tumors. It seems possible that survival rates can be improved by utilizing wide surgical resection combined with chemotherapy. We report on two cases of extreme presentation, including age, extend of disease and treatment modalities.
