Editor-In-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. [1]


In pathology, an apudoma is an endocrine tumour that arises from an APUD cell.[2][3] from structures such as the ampulla of Vater[4], pancreas[5], and prostate.[6] They are derived from neural crest cells. The term dates back to at least 1975.[7] Because the label "Apudoma" is very general, it is preferred to use a more specific term when possible.
