Abstract

Ampullary neuroendocrine tumours (ANET) are an extremely rare type of pancreatic cancer, but are a wellknown cause of pancreatitis. We report a case of an ampullary neuroendocrine tumour in a 45 year old patient who presented with acute pancreatitis and was treated with a pancreaticoduodenectomy for relief of the jaundice.
