A Case of Primary Hepatic Carcinoid Tumor Misdiagnosed as Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Abstract #285

Introduction: Carcinoid tumors generally occur in the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts. Primary carcinoid tumor of the liver is very rare. It may be misdiagnosed as hepatocellular carcinoma, which is very common.
Aim(s): We report a case of primary hepatic carcinoid tumor which was initially misdiagnosed as Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in a liver biopsy.
Materials and methods: A 38-year-old male presented with epigastric pain. Abdominal CT scan revealed a large mass in the left liver lobe and liver biopsy showed HCC. Viral markers were negative. AFP was normal. Upper GI endoscopy revealed a doudenal ulcer (PUD). Colonoscopy was reported normal. Patient underwent left liver lobe resection. Pathology and IHC revealed a carcinoid tumor.

#2685 Apatinib Inhibits Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in PNET Models
Introduction: Angiogenesis has a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Apatinib inhibits angiogenesis as a highly selective KDR inhibitor and has been used to treat advanced gastric cancer and malignancies in clinical settings. However, the efficacy of apatinib in PNETs remains unclear.

#2781 Case Report: Whole Exon Sequencing of Primary Lesion and Metastatic Liver Lesion in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms(NENs) are classified into neuroendocrine tumors (NET) G1, G2, G3, and neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC), which are different pathogenesis. The two kinds of tumors that occurs in the same lesion in one patient is very rare. We found high grade neuroendocrine neoplasms(NENG3) with a diameter of 0.1 cm in a patient with a pancreatic NETG2 (1.7 cm in diameter). The cells were significant atypia with Ki67 index of 60%, focal necrosis, while metastatic nodules in the liver (12, 0.1-1.1 cm in diameter) were all high grade NENG3.

#2832 Lymph Node Merkel Cell Carcinoma without Primary: Long Term Survival
Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare aggressive cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma with a high rate of metastasis. Approximately 5% of MCC are found in the lymph nodes (LNs) without a primary tumor on the skin.

#2835 Primary Hepatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma: Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: Primary hepatic neuroendocrine carcinoma (PHNEC) is an extremely rare neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) that originate from the liver. The diagnosis of PHNEC remains challenging because of its rarity, and its lack of unique clinical features. Available treatment options for PHNEC include surgical resection of the liver tumor(s), radiotherapy, liver transplant, transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE), and administration of somatostatin analogues.

#2846 Whole Genome DNA Methylation Profiling Identifies Neuroendocrine Tumor Origin
Introduction: Determining the origin of a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) of unknown primary can be challenging. Liver metastases can originate from any organ in the body, while pulmonary NETs can be metastases but also primary tumors. This especially holds true for Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 patients, who often have multiple primary pancreatic and intestinal NETs. It is important to know the origin of the primary tumor since resection or ablation is crucial in case of treatment with curative intent. Furthermore, the site of origin determines prognosis, treatment options and eligibility for clinical trials.
