Pancreatic mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine neoplasms (MiNENs) are rare neoplasms, composed of at least two components. The neuroendocrine part is always present. Histology is the most important tool for the diagnosis, but in the case of MiNEN, it is also important for the use of immunohistochemistry, which should include neuroendocrine but also ductal and acinar markers. Each component should be specifically described in the final pathology report, including the percentage on the entire tumor mass. The prognosis of MiNEN is very heterogeneous and depends on the different tumor components.

Abstract

Pancreatic mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine neoplasms (MiNENs) are rare neoplasms, composed of at least two components. The neuroendocrine part is always present. Histology is the most important tool for the diagnosis, but in the case of MiNEN, it is also important for the use of immunohistochemistry, which should include neuroendocrine but also ductal and acinar markers. Each component should be specifically described in the final pathology report, including the percentage on the entire tumor mass. The prognosis of MiNEN is very heterogeneous and depends on the different tumor components.
