#122 Molecular genetic findings in gastric carcinoid suggest possible neurofibromin/Ras pathway involvement in carcinoid pathogenesis
Introduction: The molecular pathogenesis of gastrointestinal carcinoid tumours is poorly understood. We have been undertaking molecular genetic investigations of a young woman with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) in whom a gastric carcinoid tumor was detected following an episode of gastrointestinal bleeding. She was otherwise relatively mildly affected by NF1. In NF1, gastric carcinoids have been found previously only in patients with other predisposing factors, which were absent in this patient.

#133 Effectiveness of transarterial embolization of liver neuroendocrine metastases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with diffuse liver metastases have a poor prognosis and prove difficult to palliate. Somatostatin analogues and chemotherapy have been used but often are poorly tolerated and may not provide symptom relief. Transarterial Embolization (TAE) is being increasingly used to improve symptom control and reduce tumor size. We looked at the last 5-year experience of TAE in patients with hepatic metastases from neuroendocrine tumors.

#35 Primary Hyperparathyroidism in patients with gastric carcinoid Tumors type-1: an unusual coexistence
Introduction: Although a number of familiar endocrine syndromes are associated with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP), there is no information regarding its prevalence in other sporadic neuroendocrine diseases.

#90 The prognostic value of FDG-PET scan in neuroendocrine tumors: a retrospective analysis of 46 patients treated in one center
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare and generally indolent. For diagnostic purposes, the sensitivity of FDG-PET scan is known to be low in this setting, though when positive, its prognostic value is not well-defined in NET.

#102 Presentation and outcome of pancreaticoduodenal tumors in Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) syndrome
Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) is a rare autosomal dominant condition characterized by the development of parathyroid, pancreaticoduodenal endocrine and pituitaty tumors. Pancreaticduodenal endocrine tumors (PDETs) are a frequent manifestation of MEN 1, with a prevalence ranging from 30 to 75%, and represent a major cause of death in one-third of patients. There is continuing debate on their management, mainly on the optimal surgical strategy, due to their multicentricity and high recurrence rate.

#519 Effectiveness of Transarterial Embolization in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with liver metastases have a poor prognosis. Somatostatin analogues and chemotherapy are used with some success. Transarterial Embolization (TAE) is increasingly used to improve symptom control and reduce tumor size.

#1447 Clinicopathologic Features, Management and Outcome of Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) in MEN1: The Verona Multidisciplinary PlaNET Group
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic endocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are a frequent manifestation of MEN1. They represent an important prognostic factor in these patients. There is still a debate on their management, mainly on surgical strategy, due to their multicentricity and high recurrence rate.
