#416 A Rare Case of Cushing Syndrome Caused by an Ectopic ACTH-Secreting Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor in a Patient with Von Hipple-Lindau Disease
Introduction: Von Hipple-Lindau (VHL) disease is a rare autosomal dominant disorder, that causes the susceptibility to various tumors, both benign and malignant. The most frequent tumors are central nervous system haemangioblastomas, especially cerebellum and retinal haemangioblastomas, renal cell carcinoma /renal cysts and pheocromocytoma.

#1075 Filamin-A Is Required for Somatostatin Receptor 2 (SST2) Stabilization, Signaling and Angiogenesis Regulation in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Somatostatin receptor type 2 (SST2) is the main pharmacological target for GEP-NETs. A subset of patients is resistant to somatostatin analogs (SSa), although the molecular mechanisms responsible for resistance are poorly understood. Several studies identified cytoskeleton protein as determinant in receptor anchoring and signaling
