A Novel MEN1 Gene Variant in a Sporadic Case of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 Abstract #1207

Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterised by the occurrence of hyperparathyroidism, pituitary adenomas and duodeno-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). Germline mutations of the MEN1 gene are identified in up to 87% of MEN1 families and 82% of isolated MEN1 cases.
Aim(s): To report a novel variant of the MEN1 gene.
Materials and methods: We describe a typical sporadic MEN1 patient. Mutational analysis of the MEN1 gene (exons 2-10) has been performed by Sanger sequencing.

#2745 Integrative Genomic Characterization Identifies Molecular Subtypes of Lung Carcinoids
Introduction: Lung carcinoids (LCs) are rare and slow growing primary lung neuroendocrine tumors. The WHO classify LCs into atypical and typical carcinoids. Recent studies have shown that the reproducibility of LCs classification and its prognostic efficacy have high interobserver variability

#135 The importance of endoscopic ultrasound in detecting recurrent gastrinoma in a case of MEN 1
Introduction: Approximately 25-30% of patients have gastrinomas as part of the inherited syndrome Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 (MEN 1). Gastrinomas occur in the pancreas, duodenum or peripancreatic lymph nodes. Diagnosis is made by clinical history, gastroscopy, and measurement of serum gastrin, gastric juice pH, CT scan, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS). Localization of gastrinomas in patients with MEN 1 is challenging due to their small size, frequent duodenal location, and multiplicity.

#1206 Two Cases of Ectopic ACTH-Secreting Neoplasm of Occult Origin Becoming Overt After Bilateral Adrenalectomy
Introduction: Cushing's syndrome (CS) is an endocrine disorder associated with serious consequences if not adequately treated. Nearly 80% of the cases of endogenous hypercortisolism are adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) dependent, the ACTH source being pituitary in about 70-80% and ectopic in 10-15%. The ACTH source may remain occult in few cases for many years in spite of extensive investigations.
