Background: Gastrointestinal (GI) neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are potentially malignant lesions originating from the enterochromaffin cells of the GI tract. These neoplasms often produce characteristic hormonal syndromes and can cause debilitating symptoms.

Introduction: Liver is the most common site in patients with advanced small bowel neuroendocrine neoplasms (SBNEN) and distant metastases. On the contrary, lung metastases are relatively uncommon, occurring in 5–13.6% of patients. Although hepatic metastases often progress and have implications to the disease outcome, not enough data are available for lung metastases.Aim: Our aim was to assess the incidence of chest (including lung, mediastina/hilar...
