#1299 Clinical Value of Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy in the Management of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma (MTC) is a rare form of thyroid cancer. It represents 5 to 10 % of these cancers. MTC grows from specialized thyroid cells called para-follicular cells, or C-cells that secrete a hormone called calcitonin. Its prognosis is usually good. Recurrences can occur, requiring lifelong surveillance.

#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.

#445 Comparison of Prognostic Capacity for Overall Survival (OS) and Disease-Free Survival (DFS) of Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Classifications: 2010 WHO, TNM Staging-ENETS and AJCC
Introduction: Current NETs classifications are: WHO, ENETS and AJCC. No consensus exists about which one more accurately predicts NET outcomes.

#595 A Single Fasting Plasma 5-HIAA Value Correlates with 24-Hour Urinary 5-HIAA Values and Other Biomarkers in Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: 5-hydoxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) is used for the evaluation of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), however, the current 5-HIAA assay requires a 24-hour urine collection which is inconvenient.

#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.

#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.

#695 Pancreatic Angiography with Selective Intra-Arterial Calcium Stimulation for the Localization of Insulinomas: A Case Report.
Introduction: Surgery is the gold standard treatment of insulinomas. Before planning the surgical procedure, the tumor must be precisely localized. Usually, the combination of Endoscopic Ultrasound, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging localize more than 80% of the tumors. But due to its small size, other more sophisticated techniques must be performed in order to improve the diagnosis accuracy. Some of them, like angiography, are invasive.

#720 Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Gallbladder: Case Report and Review of Literature
Introduction: Small-cell carcinomas arising in the gallbladder are extremely rare and aggressive tumors, which metastasize early, and have very poor prognosis. This histologic type of gallbladder carcinoma is more common in women than in men, usually coexists with lithiasis, and has a highly aggressive clinical behavior.

#740 Heterotopic Pancreatic Tissue Located in the Subserosa of the Jejunum: A Case Report
Introduction: Ectopic pancreas is defined as pancreatic tissue in an abnormal location with no ductal, anatomical, neuronal or vascular communication with the main body of the pancreas. The incidence of heterotopic pancreas in autopsy studies is approximately 0.6 - 15%, while the clinical incidence is 1 in 500 laparotomies. Ectopic pancreatic tissue can be present anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract.
