Scope note: Tumores o cáncer del PÁNCREAS. La secreción hormonal depende del tipo de CÉLULAS DE LOS ISLOTES presentes en los tumores: GLUCAGÓN de las CÉLULAS PANCREÁTICAS ALFA, INSULINA de las CÉLULAS PANCREÁTICAS BETA y SOMATOSTATINA de las CÉLULAS D. La mayoría son malignos exceptuando a los tumres productores de insulina (INSULINOMA).

Scope note: Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
Annotation: coord IM with histol type of neopl (IM); available are ALPHA-CELL TUMOR see GLUCAGONOMA; BETA-CELL TUMOR see INSULINOMA; and pancreatic delta-cell tumor see SOMATOSTATINOMA
