  • Glucagonoma
    A glucagonoma is a rare tumor of the alpha cells of the pancreas that results in the overproduction of the hormone glucagon.
  • Apudoma
    In pathology, an apudoma is an endocrine tumour that arises from an APUD cell from structures such as the ampulla of Vater,.
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2b
    Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B (also known as "MEN2B", "Mucosal neuromata with endocrine tumors", "Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 3", and "Wagenmann–Froboese syndrome") is a genetic disease that causes multiple tumors on the mouth, eyes, and endocrine glands.
  • Pinealoma
    Pinealoma is a tumor of the pineal gland.
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia
    The term multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) encompasses several distinct syndromes featuring tumors of endocrine glands, each with its own characteristic pattern.
  • Pheochromocytoma
    A pheochromocytoma (from Greek phaios "dark", chroma "color", kytos "cell", -oma "tumor") or phaeochromocytoma (PCC) is a neuroendocrine tumor of the medulla of the adrenal glands (originating in the chromaffin cells), or extra-adrenal chromaffin tissue that failed to involute after birth, that secretes high amounts of catecholamines, mostly norepinephrine, plus epinephrine to a lesser extent.
  • Somatostatinoma
    Somatostatinoma is a malignant tumor of the delta cells of the endocrine pancreas that produces somatostatin.
  • Insulinoma
    An insulinoma is a tumor of the pancreas that is derived from beta cells and secretes insulin.
  • Neuroblastoma
    Neuroblastoma (NB) is the most common extracranial solid cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy, with an incidence of about 650 cases per year in the U.
  • Parathyroid adenoma
    A parathyroid adenoma is a benign tumor of the parathyroid gland.
  • Adrenal adenoma
    A adrenal adenoma is a benign tumor of the glandular type (adenoma) in the adrenal gland.
  • Pituitary adenoma
    Pituitary adenomas are tumors that occur in the pituitary gland.
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1
    Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1 syndrome) or Wermer's syndrome is part of a group of disorders, the multiple endocrine neoplasias, that affect the endocrine system through development of neoplastic lesions in pituitary, parathyroid gland and pancreas.
  • Paraganglioma
    A paraganglioma is a rare neuroendocrine neoplasm that may develop at various body sites (including the head, neck, thorax and abdomen).
  • Pituicytoma
    Pituicytoma is a rare brain tumor.
  • Gastrinoma
    A gastrinoma is a tumor in the pancreas or duodenum that secretes excess of gastrin leading to ulceration in the duodenum, stomach and the small intestine.
  • Adrenocortical carcinoma
    Adrenocortical carcinoma, also adrenal cortical carcinoma (ACC) and adrenal cortex cancer, is an aggressive cancer originating in the cortex (steroid hormone-producing tissue) of the adrenal gland.
  • VIPoma
    A VIPoma (also known as Verner–Morrison syndrome, after the physicians who first described it) is a rare (1 per 10,000,000 per year) endocrine tumor, usually (about 90%) originating from non-β islet cell of the pancreas, that produce vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP).
  • Pineocytoma
    Pineocytoma, also known as a pinealocytoma, is a benign, slowly growing tumor of the pineal gland.
  • Trilateral retinoblastoma
    Trilateral retinoblastoma (TRb) is a malignant midline primitive neuroectodermal tumor occurring in patients with inherited uni- or bilateral retinoblastoma.
  • Adrenal tumor
    An adrenal tumor or adrenal mass is any benign or malignant neoplasms of the adrenal gland, several of which are notable for their tendency to overproduce endocrine hormones.
  • Adrenocortical adenoma
    A adrenocortical adenoma (or adrenal cortical adenoma) is a benign tumor of the adrenal cortex.
  • Papillary tumors of the pineal region
    Papillary tumors of the pineal region (PTPR) were first described by A.
  • Neuroendocrine tumor
    Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are neoplasms that arise from cells of the endocrine (hormonal) and nervous systems.
  • Pinealoblastoma
    Pineoblastoma (also pinealoblastoma) is a malignant tumor of the pineal gland.
  • Endocrine gland neoplasm
    An endocrine gland neoplasm is a neoplasm affecting one or more glands of the endocrine system.
  • Prolactinoma
    A prolactinoma is a benign tumor (adenoma) of the pituitary gland that produces a hormone called prolactin.
  • Leydig cell tumour
    Leydig cell tumour, also Leydig cell tumor (US spelling), (testicular) interstitial cell tumour and (testicular) interstitial cell tumor (US spelling), is a member of the sex cord-stromal tumour group of ovarian and testicular cancers.
