Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) are a rare neoplasm, and it is even more uncommon for them to present with lesions in the ampulla of Vater. As a result, case reports detailing this phenomenon are sparse. Here we present a case of a confirmed PanNET along with the corresponding imaging of an ampullary abnormality seen on esophagogastroduodenoscopy, and further discuss the details of the case including approach to ampullary lesions, along with the pathologic characteristics of PanNETs and their management.
