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] They are derived from neural crest cells.[5]

The term dates back to at least 1975.[6] Because the label "Apudoma" is very general, it is preferred to use a more specific term when possible.[citation needed]
