#2036 Extra-Pulmonary Colonic Tuberculosis Presenting as Intestinal Obstruction in a Patient with Disseminated Carcinoid Tumour
Introduction: Extra-pulmonary tuberculosis is responsible for 13% of all tuberculosis cases in Brazil. The incidence of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis is mainly linked to HIV epidemic but recent meta-analysis also correlated it with other diseases like diabetes and mental disorders.

#121 Serotonin synthesis inhibitors: a novel approach for managing gastrointestinal symptoms in carcinoid syndrome
Introduction: Carcinoid syndrome (CS) occurs when metastatic carcinoid tumors secrete large amounts of serotonin (5-HT) and other bioactive substances into systemic circulation, causing a variety of symptoms, including GI symptoms such as profound diarrhea. Reduction in 5-HT production by the tumor would be expected to improve symptoms in patients with CS.

#394 Efficacy of Telotristat Etiprate in Refractory Carcinoid Syndrome: Results of a Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Multicenter Study
Introduction: Diarrhea associated with carcinoid syndrome (CS) has been attributed to excess serotonin. Telotristat etiprate is an oral serotonin synthesis inhibitor that decreases peripheral serotonin production.

#396 Telotristat Etiprate Produces Clinical and Biochemical Responses in Patients with Symptomatic Carcinoid Syndrome: Preliminary Results of an Ongoing Phase 2, Multicenter, Open-label, Serial-ascending, European Study
Introduction: Excess serotonin (5-HT) may cause gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms (e.g., diarrhea) in carcinoid syndrome (CS) patients. Telotristat etiprate is an oral serotonin synthesis inhibitor designed to reduce peripheral 5-HT levels and alleviate GI distress.

#1481 Neuroendocrine Liver Metastasis: A Novel Nomogram to Predict Patient’s Prognosis After Liver Resection
Introduction: Despite surgery remains the only potentially curative option for patients with neuroendocrine liver metastases (NELMs), the factors determining the prognosis of patients following hepatectomy are poorly understood.

#2274 Liver Resection for Neuroendocrine Tumors Liver Metastases in Transplantable Patients within the Milan Criteria
Introduction: Liver transplantation (LT) has been prosed as a curative treatment for metastatic gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) but there is a lack of consensus on its real benefit when compared with hepatectomy.

#23 Developing a customized database for NET in a developing country
Introduction: The establishment of a neuroendocrine registry is extremely hard in developing countries. Many patients miss follow-up after surgical procedures and many die in different hospitals with a distinct national security health system number. As in any developing country, Brazil has a large movement of people to urban areas, making the tracking of former addresses impossible for patients who were treated some years prior. Therefore, it is more feasible to evaluate a demographic distribution of neuroendocrine tumors by topography or histological subtype, but the analysis of clinical events, such as progression-free survival, disease-free survival, time to progression or overall survival, is compromised.
