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).

#2909 Serotonin-Secreting NeuroEndocrine Neoplasms of the Pancreas: Which Are the Primary Pancreatic Carcinoids?
Introduction: Serotonin-secreting pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (5-HT-secreting pNENs) are very rare. They are characterised by high urinary 5-hydroxyindole-acetic acid (5-HIAA) levels (or high serum 5-HT levels).

#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.
