#37 Gastric GIST with synchronous neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas, Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: The Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. These are rare tumors with an incidence of 15 new cases per million per year. They often occur in individuals over the age of 40 years, without gender predominance. The clinical behavior is variable and benign tumors are the most common. They can develop anywhere in the GI tract, but are more frequent in the stomach and small intestine. The primary treatment, when located, is the surgical resection, which can be complemented with the use of imatinib.
The occurrence of neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas is rare, representing 1-5% of pancreatic cancers, and it is estimated that its incidence does not exceed 5 to one million. The tumors considered nonfunctioning (15-32% of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors) are not associated with any syndrome, and are usually incidental. They have a slight predominance in males, and are more frequent in the 6th decade of life. Nonfunctioning tumors of islet cells are virtually all malignant tumors, and the treatment consists of surgical resection.

#139 Association of carcinoid with noncarcinoid neoplasms
Introduction: Carcinoid tumors have a complex disease spectrum. Most have a benign clinical course, but some are aggressive, with invasive growth, metastasis and short survival. In carcinoid tumors, more than 20% are associated with noncarcinoid neoplasms. When the second tumor is a more malignant lesion, the prognosis usually is correlated more closely with the noncarcinoid malignant neoplasm.

#994 Predictive Biomarkers of Response in Patients with Extrapulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumors (EPNET) Treated with Platin-based Chemotherapy
Introduction: EPNET, particularly advanced and Grade 3 (G3) tumors are often treated with chemotherapy. While many patients experience tumor response, those rarely live for more than two years. Predictive markers could potentially help us to tailor the best treatment for these patients (pts).

#1215 Describing NENs: Just Clinical/Biologic Features or Actual Prognostic Factors?
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasias (NENs) are a rare group of diseases, with several possible locations and manifestations, often representing a challenging diagnosis. It is essential to improve tools that accurately predict aggressiveness and prognosis.

#1265 Prognostic Factors for Recurrence of Sporadic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors After Surgical Resection
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) are rare neoplasms with heterogeneous presentation. The diagnosis of malignancy is often difficult, and then further studies may contribute to improve prognosis criteria.

#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.
