68 Yr Female with a Growing Inoperable Myocardial Metastase Abstract #1246

Introduction: Two recent studies shows that cardiac metastases occur rather frequently, 13% in a population of serotoninproducing NETs(Noordzij 2014) and 4% in our own patient kohort of ileal NETs(Calissendorff 2014).
Aim(s): Present an unusual case of NET metastase
Materials and methods: This woman presented 2009 at the age of 63 with episodes of vertigo and headaches. A CT scan of the head was normal but transthoracic echocardiography performed in search of an embolic source showed a 5 cm structure in the vicinity of the right ventricle. MRI demonstrated that that the structure was lodged within the myocardium and with the same signal intensity pattern as myocardium.

#825 Brain Metastases in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients: Frequency and Outcome
Introduction: Brain metastases are rarely reported in patients with neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) of non-lung origin and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the gastroenteropancreatic or bronchopulmonary system. Symptomatic brain metastases are associated with dismal prognosis, so early detection and treatment could be advisable.
