A monocentric analysis of patients with pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors over 15 years: long term survival and life quality dependent from histological subtypes and surgical management Abstract #36

Introduction: Pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors substantially differ from epithelial tumors in terms of tumor biology and prognosis. In specialized interdisciplinary centers, a broad therapeutical armentarium can be used to achieve optimal treatment.
Aim(s): This is a single center study carried out over 15 years, considering surgical therapy on pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors in a university hospital. Our aim was to evaluate long-term results and life quality.
Materials and methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis on the bottom of the prospectively documented databank of the surgical department. Between 1991 and 2006, n=59 patients with pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors receiving n=80 surgical procedures were documented. TNM and WHO classification were retrospectively adjusted according to the ENETS concensus conference guidelines of 2006. Follow-up was collected until death or July 2009. Survival analyses were performed by using Kaplan-Meier’s method.

#111 Atypical lung carcinoid tumor metastatic to endocrine glands and bone marrow
Introduction: Bronchopulmonary neuroendocrine tumors (BP-NETs) comprise 20% of all lung cancers. Typical low grade carcinoid tumors (TC) represent the majority of BP-carcinoids. Intermediate grade atypical carcinoid tumors (AC) are less often encountered but more aggressive. Although metastatic dissemination to mediastinal lymph nodes, liver, skeleton and central nervous system (CNS) is common, involvement of the endocrine glands has rarely been reported.
