Introduction: Falsely elevated serum chromogranin A (CgA) is associated with the use of proton pump inhibitors, the presence of renal impairment and systemic inflammation. We aimed to investigate which laboratory parameters are independently associated with increased CgA and to develop a nomogram, in order to improve the diagnostic accuracy of CgA in detecting patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET).Methods: Our retrospective study included 155 subject...
