#283 Primary Lymph Node Gastrinoma: A Genuine Entity? Two Case Reports and a Review of the Literature
Introduction: The existence of primary lymph node gastrinoma has been proposed but is controversial. We report two cases (Case A - 37-year-old male, Case B - 43-year-old male) of apparent primary lymph node gastrinoma.

#289 Gallium-68 DOTATATE PET CT Frequently Changes Patient Management or Staging When Compared with Indium-111 Octreotide in the Assessment of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: 68Ga-DOTATATE PET CT offers higher resolution than previous octreotide-labelled scintigraphic techniques, and the literature suggests increased sensitivity for the localization and staging of NETs.

#681 The Use of Capsule Endoscopy for Assessment of Neuroendocrine Tumors of Unknown Primary Tumor Location
Introduction: Recent studies suggest that capsule endoscopy (CE) should be implemented in diagnostic work-up in patients suspected to have small bowel (SB) tumors. SB accounts for the primary tumor site in 80%-85% of patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). In 10%-15% of patients diagnosed with metastasized NET, the primary tumor site remains obscure.

#682 Neuroendocrine Tumors, Searching for New Prognostic Biomarkers
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of the digestive system were once considered relatively rare, however, the incidence is increasing. New prognostic biomarkers are needed for assessment of tumor behavior to inform patient treatment and improve outcome. The proliferation marker, Ki-67, is used for NET grading. Although classified as low grade, some tumors actually develop metastases.

#690 Primary Lymph Node Gastrinoma or Metastatic Gastrinoma with Unidentified Primary Tumor Site?

#691 Pancreatic Focal Alpha Cell Hyperplasia with Hyperglucagonaemia without the Glucagonoma Syndrome
Introduction: Pancreatic alpha cell hyperplasia and hyperglucagonaemia without the glucagonoma syndrome is a rare clinical syndrome not widely recognised. Here we describe a novel mutation in the glucagon receptor gene (GCGR) in a patient with the disease.

#857 Video Capsule Endoscopy as a Tool to Detect Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Recent studies suggest that video capsule endoscopy (CE) should be implemented in diagnostic work-up in patients with suspected small bowel tumors. Small bowel is the primary site in 80%-85% of patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). In 10%-15% of patients diagnosed with metastasized NET, the localization of the primary tumors remains obscure.

#867 Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinoma (MANECs): A Rare and Challenging Subgroup of Neuroendocrine Neoplasia
Introduction: Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) are rare entities in which at least 30% of neoplastic cells are neuroendocrine in nature (WHO 2010 classification). They result either from two independent lesions that merge together or are unique lesions with different cell populations intermingled.

#897 A Molecular Multi-Transcript Gene Blood Signature Significantly Outperforms Chromogranin A (CgA) in the Detection of Gut Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: A key issue in NET management is the need for a specific and sensitive biomarker to detect disease and assess treatment. CgA is widely utilized but has limitations.

#961 Heterogeneity in the Ki-67 Index of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Tumor heterogeneity due to tumor evolution is becoming more widely recognised. Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are routinely graded using the Ki-67 index based on a single tumor location, however, this could lead to undergrading if the Ki-67 index is higher at the metastatic site.
