Introduction: Although endocrine cancers are relatively uncommon, they represent an important group of potentially treatable cancers.
Materials and Methods: This clinicomorphological study on endocrine neoplasms excluding thyroid had total of 26 cases of endocrine neoplasms. Clinically suspected patients were histopathologically studied.
Results: Among the 26 cases, most cases belonged to tumours of parathyroid [10 cases (38.46%)], followed by adrenal gland neoplasms [8 cases (30.77%)], tumours of pituitary [6 cases (23%)] and pancreatic endocrine neoplasms [2 cases (7.69%)]. Majority of the patients were between 20–60 yrs age group except for pancreatic endocrine neoplasms, were it was < 20>
Conclusion: In this present study more number of incidence of tumour cases observed higher in parathyroid followed by Adrenal, Pituitary and Pancreas.

Keywords: Endocrine gland neoplasms, Histopathological types, Hematoxylin and eosin staining.
