Background/Aims: Gastric neuroendocrine tumors (G-NETs) are rare tumors, but their incidence is gradually increasing. Despite the existence of many classification systems, determining prognosis and planning treatment in patients with G-NETs remains a clinical challenge. In this study, the prognostic value of the World Health Organization (WHO) 2017 grading system and the effect of surgery on survival in low grade neuroendocrine tumors were investigated.
