Neurologist: drphophalia, Other replied 10 months ago

The small intestine neuroendocrine tumors are;

1) Carcinoid

2) VIPoma

3) Zollinger-Ellison.

Selective testing for plasma peptides such as gastrin, calcitonin, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide, and somatostatin, as well as urine excretion of 5-hydroxyindole acetic acid, metanephrine, or histamine are done for the diagnosis.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
