#324 Well-differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor of Uncertain Behavior: A Case Report
Introduction: A small number of Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors (PET) are well-differentiated tumors(WDET) showing benign or uncertain behavior. Prognosis mainly depends on the presence/absence of liver/bone metastasis.

#338 Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors: TNM staging and WHO Grading Relation with Prognosis
Introduction: Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) are heterogeneous, rare neoplasms (large experience is unlikely). Prognostic stratification based on TNM staging and WHO grading is still under debate.

#734 Non-Functioning Neuroendocrine Pancreatic Neoplasia as an Incidental Finding–Surgery?
Introduction: The incidence of pancreatic non-functioning neuroendocrine neoplasms (PNF-NENs) has been increasing, mainly due to small incidentalomas. Pancreatic surgery complications are still responsible for significant morbidity.

#960 Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: The Experience of an Oncology Center
Introduction: Gastroenteropanceratic neuroendocrine neoplasms(GEP-NEN) are a heterogeneous group of tumors and an exponential increase in its incidence has been noticed over the past decades.

#1715 Recurrence of 6mm Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumor, 14 Years after Excision
Introduction: Rectal neuroendocrine tumours (NET) constitute 25% of all the digestive NET. Predictive factors of distant metastasis are: size greater than 1cm, high proliferative index and muscularis or lymphovascular invasion. In the absence of these criteria, some authors advocate there is no need for long-term follow-up.

#1717 Yttrium-90 Radioembolization for Progressive Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma with Exclusive Liver Metastasis
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor and accounts for 5-10% of all thyroid cancers. Distant metastases frequently involve the liver and patient’s survival after diagnosis is around 20% at 10 years

#2245 Metastatic VIPOMA, Co-Secreting Insulin, with Complete Response to Lanreotide Combined with Capecitabine and Temozolamide
Introduction: VIPomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) associated with vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) hypersecretion causing watery diarrhea, hypokalaemia and achlorhydria. They originate mostly in the pancreas and 60-80% are malignant. Hormonal co-secretion is rarely reported.
