#84 Rare association between pancreatic insulinoma and Graves's disease: fortune or misfortune?
Introduction: In spite of low frequency ( 4 cases in 1 million population), insulimoma is a significant pathology because hypoglycemia causes severe neurologic lesions and death.

#2277 Neuroendocrine Tumors Committee of Reference Hospital: Decision-Making Process on the Diagnostic and Therapeutic Approach to Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) require a multidisciplinary approach in expert centers due to their rarity, heterogeneity and the lack of evidence about optimal clinical management.

#1896 Launching NETwerk: Diagnosis and Treatment of Neuroendocrine Tumors within a Multi-Institutional Collaboration in the Region of Antwerp-Waasland in Belgium
Introduction: Centralizing cancer services is one way to improve global outcome for cancer patients but brings along that patients must be motivated to travel and that doctors of local hospitals get deprived of the diagnostic and treatment skills. The alternative way is to centrally coordinate cancer services across different hospitals. In this scenario, local multidisciplinary teams refer all patients to be discussed among cancer specialists. This continuous feed-back system also creates the opportunity to propose additional more specific and sensitive examinations for individual patients which would introduce the end of local substandard treatment.

#264 Alterations of TIMP-3 Gene in Insulinomas and Its Significance
Introduction: Our previous study on insulinoma found allelic loss of 22q12 where suppressor gene TIMP3 located. TIMP3 can inhibit tumor invasion or metastasis, but its clinical implications in insulinoma are unknown.

#527 Pheochromocytoma Molecular Analysis After Maternal Transmission of SDHD Mutation Elucidates Mechanism of Parent-of-Origin Effect
Introduction: In SDHD mutation families, paragangliomas and pheochromocytomas usually occur only after paternal transmission of the mutation. This important but unexplained parent-of-origin effect is not due to imprinting of the SDHD gene itself (as was initially suspected) since SDHD is biallelically expressed.

#1766 Videoconsultation During Follow-Up Care of Patients with a Neuroendocrine Tumor.
Introduction: Patients with a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) are increasingly treated in expert centers leading to longer travel times for medical consultations. Videoconsultation (VC) potentially allows remote guidance of patients.

#2034 International Survey of Clinical Practice Exploring Use of Platinum-Etoposide Chemotherapy for Extra-Pulmonary High Grade Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (EP-G3-NEC)
Introduction: Platinum-etoposide (PE) chemotherapy (CH) is a globally established combination for EP-G3-NEC; the optimal schedule has not been established.

#31 Patterns and predictors of failure after curative resections of pancreatic endocrine carcinoma
Introduction: Pancreatic endocrine carcinomas (PECs) are generally associated with a good prognosis, above all after radical resection. In other pancreatic malignancies, predictors of failure and the role of lymph node ratio (LNR) are well-known, but prognostic factors and the value of LNR, as well as patterns of recurrence after surgery for PEC has never been investigated.

#89 Hyperplasia-adenoma sequence in pituitary carcinogenesis: new insight into the role of AIP gene
Introduction: Pituitary adenoma predisposition has been recently associated with germline mutations in the Aryl-Hydrocarbon Receptor Interacting Protein (AIP) gene. This association has been detected in familial and, more rarely, in sporadic cases. The mechanisms by which the AIP mutations promote pituitary adenoma development remain unknown.

#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.
