#128 Multidisciplinary reference centers: the need for combined expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of malignancies with increasing incidence (Yao et al. J Clin Oncol 2008;26:3063–72). Multidisciplinary reference centers (MRCs) can potentially offer better clinical outcomes by integrating and coordinating expert care from many specialties, reducing delays in treatments and referrals, and allowing for accrual to clinical trials. MRCs have achieved improved outcomes in ovarian, breast and lung cancers (Pollock. Ann Surg 2008;248:510–6; Gabel et al. Cancer 1997;79:2380–4; Forrest et al. Br J Cancer 2005;93:977–8). Despite this, MRCs focusing on NETs are uncommon.

#520 Left Pancreatectomy for Neuroendocrine Pancreatic Tumors
Introduction: Distal pancreatectomy for neuroendocrine tumors localized in the body-tail of the pancreas (NTP) can be performed either with splenectomy (DP) or with a spleen-preserving procedure (SPLP).

#525 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Associated with Mesenchimal Neoplasms of the GI Tract
Introduction: Neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors (NPT) are occasionally associated with mesenchimal tumors in neurofibromatosis type 1 but rarely in sporadic cases. We report five cases of NPT associated with other rare mesenchimal neoplasms of the GI tract, observed in our Department from 2003 to 2011.

#716 Adrenal Metastases and Neuroendocrine Breast Carcinoma in a MEN-1 Patient
Introduction: In Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1) pituitary, parathyroid and pancreatic/duodenal endocrine cells are typically involved. Other neoplasms also occur.

#719 Mixed Exocrine-Endocrine Pancreatic Tumors
Introduction: Mixed pancreatic tumors are very rare, characterized by association of exocrine (ductal or acinar) and endocrine components, and positivity for neuroendocrine (NE) markers in >30% of cells.

#721 Primary Carcinoid Tumors of the Pancreas
Introduction: Primary pancreatic carcinoids (foregut) are very rare. Diagnosis: high urinary 5-HIAA (or high serum 5-HT) or immunodetection of 5-HT cells.

#958 Hypoglycemic Syndrome Recurrence after Surgical Removal of a Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Adenoma
Introduction: A 56-year-old woman was submitted to caudal pancreatectomy for an insulin-secreting adenoma suspected by MRI and fast test positivity at 38th hour. Intraoperative US excluded other pancreatic lesions but tissue analysis described a 8mm neuroendocrine well-differentiated tumor and the surrounding pancreatic tissue exhibited characteristics of nesidioblastosis. Five months after surgery, she still reported episodes of hypoglycemia requiring diazoxide therapy and she was admitted to our department.
