Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (P-NENs) are the second most common solid pancreatic neoplasms. P-NENs have a wide range of imaging features presentations and they can be detected with typical and atypical imaging presentations. Typical and atypical appearances can be explained by pathologic correlations. P-NENs are generally hypervascular lesions, showing a typical enhancement behavior after contrast media injection during imaging methods, but they could also have different imaging features, creating some difficulty in differential diagnosis. For this reason, radiologists should be aware of different imaging presentations of these neoplasms. Radiological evaluation has a critical role in P-NENs identification, characterization, and staging of these neoplasms, especially in those cases in which surgery is the treatment of choice. The present paper shows, indicating the underlying pathologic correlations, typical and atypical presentations of NENs.
