Perineural invasion (PNI) is an ominous form of cancer progression in which cancer cells invade and track along nerves. PNI occurs most frequently in cancers that affect highly innervated organs, including pancreatic, head and neck, and prostate cancers. It is associated with increased recurrence and poor prognosis.
