A Pancreatic Metastasis from Carcinoid Midgut Tumor Abstract #717

Introduction: Metastatic lesions to the pancreas are rare.
Aim(s): To present a case of a ileal carcinoid tumor with a synchronous pancreatic metastasis.
Materials and methods: A 68-year-old male patient was admitted to our Clinic in 2008 for diarrhoea and flushing. Urinary serotonin (2 x), 5HIAA (5 x) and Chromogranin A (2,5 x) were increased. An Indium-111-Octreotide scan showed a focal uptake in the pancreatic head and a slight uptake in the lower abdomen. An abdominal CT scan showed a dishomogeneous pancreatic head and a hypervascular ileal lesion. The pancreatic lesion was confirmed by MRI and resulted slightly hypermetabolic with 18FGD-PET (SUV max 2.15).

#525 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Associated with Mesenchimal Neoplasms of the GI Tract
Introduction: Neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors (NPT) are occasionally associated with mesenchimal tumors in neurofibromatosis type 1 but rarely in sporadic cases. We report five cases of NPT associated with other rare mesenchimal neoplasms of the GI tract, observed in our Department from 2003 to 2011.

#606 Laparoscopic Resection of Primary Midgut Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Laparoscopic intestinal surgery is the preferable technique in the majority of intestinal surgical disorders. However, there is no series reported to date on laparoscopic resection of intestinal midgut carcinoid tumors (MCT) due to the rarity as well as the technical difficulties in resection of the large mesenteric root lymph node mass commonly found in these tumors, and the occasional difficulty in identifying the primary MCT. This is the first series reporting the results of laparoscopic resection of MCT.
