A pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (G2) with retroperitoneal lymph node metastases in one’s fifties. The pre-treatment CT scan showed (a) retroperitoneal fusion nodules with a relatively low density (white arrows, size: 2.0 cm, density: 82 HU) in front of the abdominal artery. (b) The nodules exhibited a slight reduction in size and an obvious reduction in density (white arrows, size: 1.9 cm, density: 56 HU) at the first evaluation after treatment with sunitinib. The percent change in tumor size and density was 5.0% and 31.7%, respectively. This patient was classified as PR according to the Choi criteria but as SD based on RECIST
