#773 Thymosin β4 as Putative Marker in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETS) arise from the diffuse endocrine system which produce biogenic amines and peptides that could be potential biomarker. We previously analysed proteomes secreted by NET cell lines and identified mac2BP as a putative marker which was also elevated in patients compared to healthy controls.

#1426 Pseudotumor of Thymus Occuring After Hypercortisolism Recovery: Case Report
Introduction: Cushing syndrome is due to an ectopic secreting adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) in 10 % to 20% of cases. Among them, thymic tumors represent almost half of cases. It has been described that patients sometimes develop benign hyperplasia after hypercortisolism correction.

#1681 Primary Hyperparathyroidism in Pregnancy: A Case Report
Introduction: Nausea and vomiting are common complaints during pregnancy. However, primary hyperparathyroidism in pregnancy can mimics these gastrointestinal symptoms and challenge the physician.

#2015 Single-Institutional Review of Non-Pancreatic GI Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) most commonly occur in the digestive tract with an incidence of 3.56 per 100,000 with 94% of those being non pancreatic.

#423 Case Report : A Rare Cause of Retroperitoneal Fibrosis Responding to Steroids
Introduction: Retroperitoneal fibrosis is a rare inflammatory disease. Neuroendocrine tumors are a heterogenous group that arise from enterochromaffin cells, most commonly in the gastrointestinal tract. Their capacity to secrete hormones, five HT, tachykinins etc, are responsible for symptoms known as carcinoid syndrome. However NETS, particularly arising from the midgut, can cause fibrosis. This can result in bowel obstruction, but also cause fibrosis in the retroperitoneum, lungs and cardiac valvular fibrosis.

#498 Limitations of Chromogranin A in Clinical Practice
Introduction: Chromogranin-A (CgA) is the most accurate marker for the histological diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). However diagnostic usefulness of circulating CgA is controversial as several conditions, both neoplastic and non-neoplastic, may induce false positive increases of this marker.

#528 Trans-Arterial Embolization (TAE) is the Best Locoregional Treatment Option for Patients with Liver Metastases from Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Trans-arterial embolization (TAE) and chemoembolization (TACE) have been shown to be effective in patients (pts) with liver metastases (LM) from gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (GEP NET). TAE and TACE goal is to reduce blood flow to the tumor resulting in ischemia and necrosi.

#540 Diagnositc and Prognostic Role of 68GA-DOTATATE PET in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Octreoscan (OS) is currently the gold standard for diagnosis of somatostatin receptor positive NET but it is limited by a lower spatial resolution and physiological uptake noises. DOTATATE is a somatostatin analogue, radiolabelled with 68Ga and adapted for PET imaging.

#541 Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) is a Helpful Tool to Predict the Effectiveness of Somatostatin Analogues in Patients with Liver Metastases From Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) allows characterization of the micro-vascularization of tumor lesions. Liver metastases (LM) from neuroendocrine tumors (NET) show a typical pattern on CEUS, consistent with a rapid, intense and homogeneous enhancement (hypervascular pattern) in the arterial phase.

#549 Long-Acting Somatostatin Analogues are Highly Effective in Patients with Early Stage MEN-1-Related Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues (SSA) represent one of the main therapeutic options in patients affected with functioning well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NET). There are no studies specifically focusing on NET associated to Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1).
