Abstract

Summary

Since the first report of pancreatic endocrine tumors by Wilder et al. in 1927 and the development of radio-immunoassay of gut hormone by Berson and Y allow in 1961, Japanese clinicians and scientists have contributed significantly in the reporting, investigation, and management of patients with pancreatic endocrine tumors and other multiple endocrine neoplasia. This article summarizes our contribution in this field and contrasts our experiences with those reported in the English literature.
