Classification of pancreatic endocrine tumours.Scand J Gastroenterol Suppl. 1979; 53:15-8.SJ
Conventional or electron microscopy can contribute significantly to the diagnosis of pancreatic endocrine tumours. These techniques, however, are of limited value for the classification of the tumours, which should take both clinical and morphological findings into account. In this paper a classification based on both the clinical features and on the content of peptide hormone-producing cells in the tumours is presented.
